Bentley Announces Partnership with WGBH Television

April 5, 2004

WALTHAM, Mass.- Bentley is pleased to announce a new partnership with WGBH, the nation's premiere public broadcasting television network.



Bentley has entered a year-long agreement with WGBH, and will serve as a nightly sponsor on three high-profile programs: NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Nightly Business Report, and Charlie Rose.



"We are pleased to enter a partnership with WGBH, a station synonymous with history and prestige," said Sandra King, vice president for Marketing, Communication and Public Affairs at Bentley. "Bentley's reputation for academic excellence, combined with WGBH's educated, sophisticated audience is a natural fit."



Nightly television marks Bentley's second avenue of partnership with WGBH. Last fall, Bentley joined the WGBH Forum Network as a corporate partner. The Network is an audio and video streaming web site devoted to presentations, thought-provoking lectures and panel discussions hosted by distinguished cultural and educational organizations. Bentley's area of specialty on the Network is business ethics.





WGBH is the preeminent public broadcasting station in the United Stated (producing over one third of all productions in the country), and WGBH is a treasure to New England, to over 2 million viewers that watch WGBH each week, and to the 205,000 active and loyal members that donate over $40 million dollars a year in support.
