About Paley

The Paley Center for Media is the leading, nonprofit 501(c)(3) cultural institution whose mission is to preserve our media history and explore media’s powerful shaping influence on our culture and society.

During the year, the Paley Center produces unmatched programs for the public and industry. On the public side, our programs, such as PaleyFest, celebrate the very best of television, digital content, and interactive entertainment. On the industry side, the Paley Center serves as a think tank, convening the most influential business leaders to explore and debate the most critical issues and opportunities within the industry while also fostering a sense of community amongst peers. Through our respected PaleyImpact series, we educate and explore how media impacts culture and shapes public discourse on important societal issues.

At the heart of the Paley Center sits the Paley Archive, which represents the largest public collection of its kind and is often cited as a national treasure, with 160,000+ programs spanning almost 100 years. This collection also serves as an incredible resource for K-12 educators and students nationwide that we serve through our respected education programs and classes.
