We are committed to the education of West Texans, with a special emphasis on the development of young children.

We do all of this under the guidance of a community board made up of local volunteers who feel as strongly about the value of public television as you do. These volunteers created Permian Basin Public Telecommunications, Incorporated in 2005 specifically to build public television into a broadcast and community service leader.
