ARLINGTON, VA – Today, PBS joined Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) to announce the return of public television in South Texas.
This initiative was spearheaded by representatives from PBS, Entravision, and Rep. Gonzalez’s Congressional office to ensure that those in the Rio Grande Valley have access to PBS’s over-the-air programming.
“We are grateful for the collaborative efforts of Rep. Gonzalez and Entravision in putting public television back on-air in the Rio Grande Valley. PBS is a trusted source for free, educational and entertaining content that unites people from all corners of America. It is our mission to meet viewers where they are— across all platforms— and we are thrilled that PBS services are again available in the Rio Grande Valley,” said Jim Dunford, PBS Senior Vice President of Station Services.
“We celebrate this success and will seek continued support and engagement from the community in order to keep this vital programming available to all,” said Rep. Gonzalez.
PBS can be found throughout most of the Rio Grande Valley over-the-air on channel 21.4. It is also available on Spectrum Cable channel 10, on DISH channel 61, and on DirectTV channel 389.
To accompany this announcement, PBS created a PSA in Spanish and English for media distribution.
