JAY SHARBUTT:
Television in

NEW YORK (P) -- Public tele-
vision's gavel-to-gavel broadcasts
of the Watergate hearings may
be a boon for local stations. But
they're causing a financial pinch
for the outfit actually covering
the hearings - the National Pub-
lic Affairs Center for Television.
"The irony of the whole thing
is that the fantastic success of
the Watergate hearings on tele-
vision is going to hurt NPACT
considerably," says James Kar-
ayn, president of the organiza-
tion.
HE SAYS a search for addi-
tional money is under way and

"we'll take it from anybody.
We'll even take it from the Com-
mittee for the Re-election of the
President."
Center officials say it costs the
center about $12,000 each day to
televise the hearings live and to
tape them for rebroadcast at
night.
They say the coverage has pro-
duced a tremendous viewer res-
ponse - more than 70,000 letters,
most of them approving - but it
also has cut sharply into the cen-
ter's budget for its own program-
ming.
THEY SAY there's just enough
money in the till to continue the
coverage through June. After
that, they'll have to dip into
funds they otherwise would use
for series or special events pro-
grams next fall.
They say that money would
come from $800,000 the Corpor-
ation for Public Broadcasting has
promised the center for the fis-
cal year starting July 1, as well
as from $1.5 million they hope to
get from the Ford Foundation.
Karayn says that, without ad-
ditional funds, the center will
have to cancel one of four ser-
ies it has planned for next fall.
HIS ORGANIZATION produces
the coverage of the hearings for
the Public Broadcasting Service
but cannot seek public donations
for itself.

Its videotape of each day's
hearings, complete with sum-
maries and support-your-local-
station appeals, is broadcast at
night over the "interconnection"
linking the 234 public television
stations served by PBS.
PBS officials say the evening
broadcasts are shown on an av-
erage of 90 percent of those sta-
tions. And scores of them use the
pauses in the center's hearing
coverage to ask viewers for do-
nations.
AS OF YESTERDAY, the res-
ponse - either by phone-in pled-
ges or contributions by mail -
had netted WNET here $45,000 in
cash since the May 17 start of
the hearings, according to station
officials.
At WPBT in Miami, officials
said pledges just through June 6
came to $51,905, with $23,417 of
it actually in hand and more ex-
pected. At San Francisco's KQ-
ED, viewers have pledged $60,-
891; station officials estimate the
actual cash take probably will
come to about $45,000.
PBS, which like the center says
viewer reaction to coverage of
the hearings has been excellent,
says it has no figures on how
much cash viewers have sent in
throughout the United States.
Karayn estimates it at $750,000.
