In 1950, Milwaukee Area Technical College (then called Milwaukee Vocational and Adult Schools) along with other area organizations proposed an educational television system. In 1957 that proposal became a reality. Milwaukee PBS began with two hours of programming each night. It was the nation’s 28th educational television channel.
Today Milwaukee PBS produces six local shows that cover Milwaukee, the surrounding area, and Wisconsin. These programs cover important issues, local communities, the arts, the outdoors and more. Our latest news and public affairs program, 10thirtysix, highlights a mix of topics that educate, inform and inspire. Channels 10 and 36 also broadcast local specials and national PBS programming. Tune in this Fall for The Great American Read and find out what America’s favorite novel is and don’t miss The Mayo Clinic – Faith – Hope – Science, a new Ken Burns, Erik Ewers and Christopher Loren Ewers documentary premiering September 25 on Milwaukee PBS.
