The More You Know is the longest running, most comprehensive network public service campaign in the media landscape. In 1989, NBC was the first television network to launch its own public service campaign with an education message featuring NBC News’ Tom Brokaw. The campaign, created in response to the teacher shortage in the late eighties, was first introduced in an effort to recruit and retain educators.
NBCUniversal’s The More You Know has garnered nearly fifty national awards including the prestigious Emmy and Peabody Awards. Click here to view some of the awards.
