WGBH is a public media powerhouse, serving the neighborhood and the nation with award-winning programs and services that educate, inspire, and entertain.
Through television, radio, the Web, mobile, and a growing number of other platforms, we enrich people’s lives, producing non-commercial, member- supported content that fosters citizenship and culture, the joy of learning, and the power of diverse perspectives.
WGBH is PBS’s leading producer and a major supplier of programming for public radio nationwide. More than 70 million Americans watch WGBH’s productions every month, including Frontline, Nova, American Experience, and Antiques Roadshow—all produced out of our Boston studios. A pioneer in children’s media (from Zoom to Curious George), WGBH creates and delivers curriculum-based educational content for teachers, students, and families across the nation. WGBH invented captioning for people with hearing loss and descriptive video for blind audiences, and we continue to make breakthroughs that give people with disabilities equal access to media.
As a local broadcaster, we tackle issues important to the communities we serve, create new forums for civic discourse and debate, and provide unique programs—broad in their range of focus, but hyper-local in their points of view. WGBH operates six Boston-area television channels (WGBH 2, WGBX 44, World, Create, ’GBH Kids, Boston Kids & Family); four WGBY TV channels in Springfield, Massachusetts; three radio services (89.7 WGBH, 99.5 WCRB, and WCAI Cape and Islands.) – less
