Northwest Public Television with its main office and studios located in Pullman, Wash., (KWSU-TV) is among the oldest broadcast stations of its kind, having begun operation in 1962. Instructional television began as part of the WSU Libraries in 1967 and was moved to KWSU Radio-Television Services creating a complete audio/video telecommunications department (Murrow Public Media).
KTNW-TV, located in Tri-Cities, Wash., was established by local community support matched by a U.S. Department of Commerce equipment grant. Its studios are located at the Tri-Cities branch campus of WSU. The addition of KTNW doubled the audience for the service.
The combined services, now known as Northwest Public Television, provide a regional source of information, arts, culture and public affairs programming to enhance the quality of life in the communities served. Northwest Public Radio is a joint licensee with NWPTV.
Murrow Public Media is the video production division for KWSU and KTNW public television, producing programming from both of the production studio facilities mentioned above.
Our mission at Northwest Public Television is to be a regional source of information, arts, culture and public affairs programming to enhance the quality of life in the communities it serves.
