Description
Keychains such as this one were given to donors to the Boston-area public broadcast company, WGBH. The company’s television channel is Channel 2.
WGBH was among the public broadcast companies that pioneered the practice of giving premiums, or thank you gifts, to supporters of public radio and public television. Familiar with the university fundraising operations’ use of premiums, WGBH began offering such gifts to supporters in the 1970s.
