WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO LAUNCH A DEDICATED KPTS PBS 24/7 KIDS CHANNEL

KPTS is launching a capital campaign to raise $160,000. This campaign will allow KPTS to broadcast a fourth channel -- the KPTS PBS KIDS 24/7 CHANNEL. Funds are needed to purchase a new encoder and other equipment to broadcast this channel to our viewers throughout Central Kansas. This new channel will allow KPTS to increase our children’s programming by 300 percent! With your help, we plan to launch the new channel Fall 2019.

The new, KPTS PBS KIDS 24/7 CHANNEL will ensure high-quality content is available to all children and caregivers on a platform at a time that works for them, including primetime, weekends and other out-of-school times when they are most likely to tune in. The channel will be available over the air, as a live stream on www.pbskids.org and on other free PBS KIDS Video Apps for mobile and tablet devices.

Did you know, for more than 10 years, PBS has been the most trusted place for children’s programming? PBS KIDS content helps children build critical skills – among them, early literacy, math and social-emotional skills – that enable children to find success in school and life, while also helping parents increase their own engagement in their children’s learning.

We need your help to make this new channel a reality. Remember, no amount is too small or too large. Call 316-838-3090 to make a donation by credit card; mail your donation to KPTS - Channel 8, 320 West 21st St. North, Wichita, KS 67203; or click here to make our new KPTS PBS KIDS 24/7 CHANNEL a reality.
