Message from WTCI President and CEO
I continue to enjoy serving the Tennessee Valley at WTCI – our community’s largest classroom, largest stage and trusted window to the world. Each week WTCI serves all children by providing sixty hours of quality children’s programming – new, fun and educational series that are sure to engage and entertain children. PBS Kid’s programming has an unmatched lineup of shows that helps children learn reading, math and essential skills.
With our lineup of PBS programming, WTCI ensures the worlds of music, theater, dance and art remain available to everyone in our community, many of whom might never have the opportunity to experience them otherwise. WTCI also provides fair and trustworthy information in addressing important issues. These are things that my family values, and I imagine yours does, also.
WTCI presents PBS KIDS – the #1 educational media brand and is #1 in innovation, providing on-air and online content used by parents and educators in the home and classroom. As online and mobile technologies emerge, WTCI continues to be a trusted and safe place for children to watch television and to visit online.
As part of Tennessee’s Race To The Top Grant, WTCI, in partnership with the Tennessee Public Television Council, Tennessee Department of Education and PBS, will be the state’s lead station to administrate, design, produce and deliver Customized Learning Objects to be used by educators for professional development and as a resource in the classroom.
WTCI is committed to using media for the public good. With WTCI’s Strategic partnerships continually growing – nationally, statewide and locally – we are proud to share these valuable resources to educate, engage and inspire a lifetime of learning and exploration.
After sharing more than forty years of proven leadership in the community, I thank you for your support of WTCI and look forward to even greater possibilities in the future.

Proud Member of WTCI
