Eight public television licensees operate twelve stations across the state. Located in every major city in Ohio as well as rural areas, the broadcast service of the twelve stations cover the entire state. Ohio's public television stations provide the most utilized source of lifelong learning for all Ohioans and serve as a valuable link between the education field and the community. Ohio's public television stations were established, in large part, to provide instructional broadcast programming and support services to all Ohio districts and schools. Additionally, each public television license has close ties with higher education institutions in its region.
Ohio's public television stations are uniquely qualified to produce multi-media content specifically geared to support Ohio teachers in the K-12 classroom. Because the productions are developed in conjunction with Ohio educators for the express purpose of serving their needs, the stations can assure the content is correlated to academic standards, visually engaging, dynamic and targeted to educators' professional development.
The stations are serving their communities through their broadcasts, websites, coverage of community meetings and forums, special events for children and adults, as well as the creation of education resources.
