KNPB Programming Excellence

While most of the programming aired on KNPB comes from the national Public Broadcasting System (PBS) feed, our station makes it a priority to supplement PBS programming with other national programming and locally produced programs related to the concerns and interests of residents in northern Nevada. We believe this expanded program offering is an important part of our mission to enrich, inspire, entertain, and delight our community. The KNPB Programming Excellence Fund provides the funds needed to expand the programs on KNPB.
