why the name change?
Nationally, PBS celebrated the start of its 50th anniversary year in 2019 with a “refresh” of their logo, giving it small visual changes. Changing our name to PBS12 helps us visually align ourselves more closely with the nation’s most trusted brand.
As we commemorate our own 40th anniversary this year, PBS12 will be celebrating its traditions of independence and diversity, while continuing to be the kind of station you can count on:
- Seekers and the civic-minded rely on PBS12 to help decipher and explore current topics in politics, science, history, nature, the nation, and the world.
- Enthusiasts and dreamers come to PBS12 for a journey into the worlds of travel, drama, music, art, and dance.
- Rebels depend on PBS12 to continue taking risks and welcome alternative, independent voices.
