Who We Are

For more than three decades, Free To Choose Media (FTCM) production teams have traveled the world to bring to public television powerful stories about the human spirit, the drive for individual freedom and fresh perspectives on a range of global and national issues. The award-winning production company was founded by Bob Chitester (formerly president of WQLN, Erie and creator of Milton Friedman’s Free To Choose series among other series and specials) with Senior Executive Producer Tom Skinner (formerly executive vice president of WQED, Pittsburgh and executive producer of 16 seasons of the Emmy Award-winning National Geographic Specials and Planet Earth, as well as numerous high-quality series and programs for public and commercial television).

Programs and series from Free To Choose Media have been distributed via the PBS National Program Service, APT, and NETA.
