I'm David Gordon, Executive Director of PBS North Coast. I hope you’ll take the time to explore our site and discover the many ways this community-licensed public television station has a positive impact on your life. While here on this site, you can become a member, check out our current and past programs, discover when your favorite shows will be on, and sign up to become a PBS North Coast volunteer.

PBS North Coast has a very proud history of being an important part of life here for more than 48 years. We serve our local communities with trusted news and programs that inspire, respect and educate our audience. PBS North Coast delivers this service through multiple outlets, including television and digital media, adapting to remain relevant in a rapidly changing world.


PBS North Coast provides five distinct channels of programming: PBS; PBS Kids; Create, featuring how-to, DIY and other lifestyle-oriented instructional programming; FNX (First Nations Experience), featuring Native American & Indigenous programming created by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians & KVCR; and World, featuring non-fiction, science, nature, news, public affairs and documentary programming.  These five channels include everything from SESAME STREET and CURIOUS GEORGE to MASTERPIECE, FRONTLINE, NOVA, and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE.  That is the essence of what we do: Bring programming of cultural, musical, educational and entertainment significance to people who would otherwise never see them.   


We rely very heavily on financial support from our members and we would like to add YOU to our public television family.
