Channel One Teams Up to Create "Coalition to Empower Teens" Campaign

The controversial Channel One Network, which broadcasts programming directly into 400,000 secondary school classrooms, is partnering with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Partnership for a Drug Free America, National Association of Secondary Principals, and the National Mental Health Awareness Campaign to form the "Coalition to Empower Teens" campaign. Channel One pledged to donate ten percent of its advertising time to public service announcements that "address the issues of underage drinking, prevention of school violence, illegal substance abuse, and mental health awareness."
