Project Notice from New England Diary contributor Llewellyn King:

I am soliciting interested companies and organizations to provide funding for me and a small television crew to travel to Puerto Rico and report on the power situation and the role of mainland utilities in rebuilding the electric grid.

This is one of American industrial history's great rebuilding stories. My plan is to tell it from the point of view of the engineers and lineworkers.

If you are interested in funding a series (three half-hour episodes) of my weekly news and public affairs program, "White House Chronicle" on PBS, please contact me. As an independent producer, I do not receive any funding from PBS.

This series would air nationwide on 200 PBS and public, educational and governmental access stations, and the commercial AMG TV network. It would air worldwide on Voice of America Television and Radio. And the audio would air three times on SiriusXM Radio's P.O.T.U.S. (Politics of the United States), Channel 124.

Contact me, too, if you are interested in funding just my reporting on this effort for InsideSources, the syndicate which distributes my weekly column to 500 newspapers.

This is U.S. electricity history and it should be recorded. I hope to hear from you.

Allbest,

Llewellyn King
