Parents Television Council Launches Northeastern Ohio Chapter

Chapter Started by Local Business Man


LOS ANGELES (December 4, 2008) - The Parents Television Council™, a non-partisan education organization advocating responsible entertainment, announced Chet Green as the director of the Northeastern Ohio Chapter.


As a parent, Green is embarrassed by the obscene content on television. “Everything is everywhere with nothing being taboo. With young viewers in the audience, broadcasters need to be responsible. Too often my family and I are assaulted by vulgar cartoons and foul-mouthed reality shows. It is embarrassing and it needs to be changed,” said Green. “I am proud to be part of the PTC and I know that our mission will resonate throughout the community.”


The Northeastern Ohio Chapter will both educate and mobilize the community to initiate positive change in the quality of entertainment. The chapter will be a resource of free information to the community on the latest news, studies, and family-friendly programming. It will also reach out to local television affiliates and advertisers to increase support for more socially responsible programs.


Green is active in his local youth and senior groups. He is also involved in the business community and his local Chamber of Commerce. Through the Chamber of Commerce, Green helps support the Lake County Safety Council which promotes workplace safety.


Tim Winter, president of the PTC, said, “The PTC is built on a foundation of activists like Chet. He is an outstanding volunteer and community leader with a passion for protecting children against today’s graphic and grotesque programming. The Northeastern Ohio Chapter will be a beacon of hope to parents, many of whom have given up on TV in the past.
