Do have BBC in the US?

BBC World News is shown in my state (North Carolina) on PBS - the Public Broadcasting System, at 11 PM each night. PBS is partly supported by tax money and also by donations - it is a non-commercial network (unlike ABC, NBC, CBS or Fox), usually affiliated with the public universities in each state. They do not show commercial advertisements for money to finance themselves. There are something like 17 transmitters in my state and its always on local cable. I like the BBC news very much, and find its reporting to be exceptional. Radio broadcasts of BBC News can be received on a radio which receives short wave broadcasts. I do hope BBC survives its current troubles, which it seems to me, though extremely unfortunate, to have little connection to the actual work of the BBC. It would be a great loss if the BBC were to be discontinued.
