Blue Ridge PBS is a public broadcasting station serving the Roanoke Valley and Southwest Virginia. The station signed on the air August 1, 1967 and thanks to the donations of our members we have continued to provide quality, commercial free programming for 50 years. Founded by a group of concerned citizens and educators, Blue Ridge PBS is a community licensee created to be the area's story teller and pursue programs that speak directly to our viewers. Through our involvement in the community, we benefit all by providing a safe trusted environment for innovative content and online learning.
No matter where you live, Blue Ridge PBS enriches your community through local productions, national programming and educational intiatives. In fact, it is the mission of Blue Ridge PBS to enrich peoples lives by providing educational, informational and cultural programming that fills a unique role as a positive and lifelong resource for the communities we serve.
As a community licensee and the area's story teller, Blue Ridge PBS counts on the donations received from individuals and foundations to defray program costs and support production expenses for local documentaries. These programs include, "Masterpiece-Downton Abbey", NOVA, and our most recent locally produced documentary "Lakeside: 60 Years of Fun inThe Sun". Thank you for your consideration and support, we pledge that all donations will be used wisely to support our mission.
