As Florida’s largest public media company, serving the nation’s 7th largest television audience, South Florida PBS is a model of public broadcasting for the future built on over 90 years of combined service to our region. As a community we have grown together by sharing stories, encouraging vital conversation, and connecting South Florida and the world.

     - From classical to contemporary, we provide a front row seat to celebrated arts programs, such as Great Performances, Masterpiece, and the Emmy-winning local series Art Loft.

     - From the ocean depths to classroom tables, we provide a way to explore the world and develop young minds with educational content like NOVA, Changing Seas and PBS KIDS.

     - From local issues to global concerns, we give you a seat at the table of critical discussions about our changing world through public affairs programs like PBS Newshour and Frontline.

These programs enrich the human spirit, create lifelong learning opportunities, and are available to everyone to experience and enjoy. Your investment in South Florida PBS helps us continue to make a difference for the entire South Florida community.
