Few broadcasters have devoted more resources to philanthropic endeavors than CBS.
CBS Cares, consisting of distinctive broadcast PSA’s with CBS Stars and a groundbreaking related website (www.cbscares.tv) was recognized with the very prestigious Paul G. Rogers Leadership Award.
CBS Cares is a highly successful collaboration between various areas at CBS – Entertainment, News, Sports, Program Practices, Promotions and Digital Media. The project is led by a gifted Senior Vice President of Program Practices at CBS, Matthew Margo.
CBS is to be commended for being a true pioneer as it uniquely explores and expands on health and social issues that are of vital importance to everyone. The incisive discourse offered is also sensitive to those who often leave a physicians office with more questions than answers.

Youth Sports Program
Tony Filson of Filcro Media devotes substantial time and resources pro bono, twice a year, to promote
Aruba’s abundant offerings of beach and water sports activities to help build youth sports programs.
This endeavor was founded from a true appreciation of Aruba, the Arubian People and the ever evolving
and humble photography skills of Tony Filson.
This philanthropic project started in 2013, providing media coverage of kitesurfing, windsurfing and beach
tennis in Aruba and can only be equated to a “non profit media NGO” devoted to youth sports, in one of the
most beautiful environments in the world conducive to international kitesurfing, windsurfing and beach tennis
competitions. To Learn More
The goal of the project is to expand these programs to additional locations based on the need and support
of those in the media industry who have proven to be champions of generosity and compassion.
