Basin PBS and YOU
Basin PBS is non-profit community-owned and community-run public television.
Basin PBS is actually far more than television. We don't think of ourselves as being in the business of television. Our business is really about ideas, learning, arts and culture, and citizenship. Television is simply the means by which we deliver these resources to you, our neighbors.
Television is a powerful instrument that can be used for good or ill. It can raise the level of discourse in our society, but it can also degrade it. It can broaden our horizons, but it can also narrow our worldview. It can bring us together, or leave us isolated and self-absorbed.
At Basin PBS, we work each day to put television to good use for the benefit of everyone in our region.
As a public service, we profit by improving the community on which we depend for support. We succeed to the extent that our children learn, our viewers become engaged in matters that concern them, and those within our communities join together in a common cause.
For children, we are a story teller and teacher. For families, we are the channel they trust—a valued friend that shares their values. For adults, we are a source of childlike wonder and lifetime learning.
We are an integral part of the Permian Basin community. The professionals and volunteers who work to make Basin PBS possible are people who live alongside you. Your neighborhoods, schools, churches, parks, and community institutions are also the places where we live, study, worship, and play.
Basin PBS is not just public television, but quite literally the public's television, a community resource that is dedicated to serving everyone through our quality television programs, our educational services, our outreach projects, and our involvement in the community.
