With hundreds of channels available to the average viewer, there is still simply nothing on television even remotely like public television, and its ability to communicate with a remarkable audience.
KVIE programming excites the mind and the spirit, and our commitment to quality never wavers. KVIE is the top choice for viewers with an eye for current events, science, nature, history, culture, and much more. KVIE is the source for the most trusted, balanced, and objective public affairs programming including PBS NewsHour, BBC World News America and Nightly Business Report; for television’s best science and nature programming with NOVA and Nature; for a remarkable range of history and performance programming including American Experience and Masterpiece; and for PBS high-profile specials, such as Ken Burns’ remarkable documentaries.
Moreover, KVIE reflects the community back to itself by creating compelling and relevant local programming. KVIE is one of the most prolific producers in the nation, and serves a diverse group of audiences with each new program.
The community recognizes the quality and value of public television, and proves their appreciation through support for the station. Today, there are 50,000 members of KVIE – people who voluntarily offer support for quality programming. And, each year KVIE benefits from the support of more than 5,000 volunteers in various station activities, logging in over 33,000 hours of volunteer time this past year. KVIE is a rise above the ordinary; a station that goes beyond regular TV.
PBS ranks #1 in public trust among public service institutions for the 13th consecutive year with 78% trusting PBS “a great deal” or “trust somewhat1.“ This trust transfers into a halo-effect for public television sponsors with their association with KVIE:
