“PBS has nothing to do with the actual defense of the country…PBS just makes our country worth defending.” – Ken Burns
“All because KVIE has been a source of inspiration for me, I have expanded my talents to become a freelance writer, gourmet cook and European traveler. Watching PBS programming ‘flipped on the light bulb’ over my head and made me realize that although I don’t have a formal education, I can be clever, creative, and adventurous!"
— LeeAnn Dickson, Roseville
“KVIE has changed my life and the lives of my family members significantly. My kids grew up watching All Creatures Great and Small. My son is now studying to be a veterinarian. I can’t think of a greater influence on a young person’s life than what KVIE did for my son. I’m grateful for that.”
— Henry Wirz, Sacramento
“I think about the programs on KVIE being part of an experience for my children, for my grandchildren, for my great-grandchildren…and leaving an estate gift is a way to make that happen.”
— Bill Slaton, Carmichael
