Kraig Everard, WPBS Director of Advancement, recently made an interesting presentation about this unique “two nation station”.
Headquartered in Watertown, New York state, WPBS (Watertown Public Broadcasting Service) serves the region of northern New York state and Eastern Ontario including Kingston and Ottawa. Kraig explained that the station has the equivalent of 20 full-time employees and it is part of a system of member stations that focus on high quality programming. Their goal is to be the media choice for life-long education, entertainment and information through quality content, partnerships and service. Kraig pointed out that the station is a producer of local content, nationally syndicated programs and commercial-free children’s programming that is widely recognized for its excellence.
