Friends of South Florida PBS

In the fall 2015, South Florida’s two leading public television stations – WPBT2 and WXEL merged to become South Florida PBS - a model of public broadcasting for the future built on over 90 years of combined service to our region. We are Florida’s largest public media company, serving the nation’s 7th largest television audience. We have grown together as a community by broadcasting and sharing stories, encouraging vital conversation, and connecting South Florida with the world.

Our mission is to continue to provide programming that serves our community and enriches the lives of all our viewers of all ages, backgrounds and cultures. Our content changes lives, inspires trust, and makes a difference. You can make a difference, too! Your support directly touches the lives of current residents and future generations.</iframe>
