NHPBS is a 501(c)3 multi-media, educational non-profit organization governed by a local Board of Directors. As the only statewide, locally owned and operated PBS member station, five transmitters carry the station’s signal to 98% of the Granite State, (and beyond). Over 200,000 students annually benefit from NHPBS' free, curriculum-aligned, educational services, while hundreds of thousands of online visitors access information and interactive content. NHPBS engages audiences via community screenings and events that spark meaningful dialogue and community connection throughout the Granite State. The station receives no state funding and is supported by nearly 22,000 members.


For over sixty years, NHPBS has provided the residents of New Hampshire and Northern New England with the best of PBS and award-winning local programs. To this day, the station remains committed to a handful of time-tested tenets: commercial free programming that engages minds, connects communities, and celebrates the Granite State in a way that entertains as well as educates and has impact beyond the broadcast. NHPBS is valued by its viewers for providing high quality, educational programming that can’t be found anywhere else. PBS and its member stations, like NHPBS, has been voted the #1 trusted brand in America for 14 consecutive years by the American public (Source: Roper Poll).
