Walterry Insurance Brokers is a full service insurance brokerage. Established in 1968, offices are located in Clinton, Maryland, a suburb of Washington DC.

In 1978, Walterry joined forces with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and PBS to establish a broadcasters’ libel insurance policy specifically for public broadcasting. Currently, Walterry insures over 400 public television and radio stations under this policy.

Continuing its support for public broadcasting, Walterry designed and wrote one of the first true occurrence policies for Film and Television producers allowing public television stations to obtain policies for their productions distributed to others.
