The Senate Commerce Committee slated a nomination hearing for President Bush's picks for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting board.

At the Sept. 17 hearing, the committee will hear testimony from two current members -- Cheryl Halpern and David Pryor -- and three prospective members: Bruce M. Ramer, Elizabeth Sembler and Loretta Cheryl Sutliff.

CPB gives out the federal-grant money that makes up about 15% of noncommercial broadcasters' budgets.
