Kansas City PBS celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967, making possible public television as a service to the citizens of this country. These services — created for viewers like you — were intended for your education and cultural use, designed to take creative risks, meant to address public affairs, and developed to meet the needs of unserved and underserved audiences. While the media landscape has changed dramatically since 1967, the mission of KCPT to engage and enrich the lives of the Kansas City community has not. Tune in to these winter fundraising programs to support our efforts of building new and innovative ways to serve you for the next 50 years and beyond!
