No Pots Of Gold In Sight For ‘Rainbow’

‘Reading Rainbow’ is one of public broadcasting’s most successful and award-winning programs. The program, which focuses on bringing books to life for a young audience, is twenty years old, but has had to cut back production in recent years due to a lack of funding. Executive producer and host LeVar Burton continues to shake every money tree that comes his way, but as he picked up the show’s seventh Emmy this month, even Burton had to acknowledge that ‘Reading Rainbow’ may not be around for much longer.
