KVIE is far more than television. In fact, we don't think of ourselves as being in the business of television. Our business, rather, is really about ideas, learning, arts and culture, and citizenship. Television is simply the means by which we deliver these resources to our community.

As a public service, we profit by improving the community in which we depend for support. We succeed to the extent that our children learn, our viewers become engaged in matters that concern them, and those within our communities join together in a common cause.

Writer; Retired News Reporter

I volunteer for KVIE Public Television because…
it plays an important role in my life and that of our community. Public television consistently informs  and entertains me and my family. I learn from NOVA, American Experience, and other programs. In our increasingly complicated world, I depend on The NewsHour for objective and in-depth reporting on national and world events. KVIE’s own programs—America’s Heartland, Studio Sacramento, and Rob on the Road—enlighten me on public issues and the fun of traveling our state. KVIE offers all this for free to our community which is why I support it.

My favorite program is…
NewsHour and Masterpiece Mystery.

My favorite location in KVIE’s viewing area to enjoy is…
Sacramento.
