Iowa Public Television is now Iowa PBS. New name. Same essential mission.

About Iowa PBS

Iowa PBS is Iowa's statewide public broadcasting network. We provide quality, alternative programming that educates, enlightens, and entertains viewers throughout the state.

Our noncommercial, public-service mission enables us to bring you locally produced programs of lasting value regardless of where you live or what you can afford. Our educational media and resources help prepare Iowa’s children for success in school and opens up the world to them in age-appropriate ways. Nearly half the households in our viewing area tune to Iowa PBS each month for programming that reflects a range of interests for Iowans in all demographic categories.

We became Iowa PBS on January 1, 2020, prior to that we operated as Iowa Public Television.

Our Mission:

Iowa PBS educates, informs, enriches and inspires Iowans.
