Since 1968, WVPT has been the Shenandoah Valley and Central Virginia’s public television station. But that’s just scratching the surface. WVPT is also a classroom, a concert hall, a conference center, a college, and a library of the airwaves. WVPT is one of the most accessible educational institutions in the region, utilizing the power of broadcasting to help carry out its mission of education, culture, and citizenship for everyone within its reach.
Beyond an exciting mix of public broadcasting and locally produced programming, WVPT conducts groundbreaking literacy programs, science-related family events, morale-building awards projects, community assistance projects and educational seminars. The reason? To educate all ages, affirm high ideals for social good, assist neighbors in need, promote our diverse culture, and to celebrate life in Virginia.
Local series and specials lift up unique cultures that make up the WVPT viewing area, remind us of times when the human spirit triumphed in adversity, open up pages of little-known area history, and promote that which is “Virginia” and of which we can all be proud.
WVPT’s over-the-air broadcast coverage area consists of 40 counties. The signal is also carried on numerous cable channels, including Charlottesville, Lexington, Lynchburg, Harrisonburg, Staunton, and Winchester. WVPT is carried on DirecTV in the Harrisonburg market. WVPT’s sister station WVPY, licensed to Front Royal, is carried on both Dish Network and DirecTV in the Hagerstown/Washington, DC market.
