The Family Television Awards are the only awards in which the members of the Association of National Advertisers -- major corporate marketers -- recognize outstanding programming for family viewing. The 46 major national advertisers that participate in the Family Friendly Programming Forum work to encourage the television community to produce more prime-time shows that families can view together.

"All that we have accomplished has been outstanding," said Kaki Hinton, Family Friendly Programming Forum and Vice President, Advertising Services for the Pfizer Consumer Group. "The Script Development Fund and the programs we have underwritten have been very rewarding and fulfilling. The Scholarship Fund we have established with three schools has also been inspiring. The commitment of all the members to the Forum is outstanding, particularly considering some of us are fierce competitors. But this is one thing we are all aligned on."

"Every time a new family show airs on network television, or every time a new script, funded through our script development program, is picked up by a network, we feel satisfied that all of the hard work we have put into the creation and expansion of the Forum has been well worth the effort," added Dawn Jacobs, Forum co-Chair and Johnson & Johnson's Vice President of Advertising.
