FALL PROGRAM UPDATE
DURHAM, NH (August 30, 2022) – As we shift the calendar from summer to fall, routines around work, school, hobbies and activities tend to follow a steady pace. New Hampshire PBS offers new programs and new programming schedules, designed to better meet the needs, interests and lifestyles of viewers.
NHPBS is available on five major broadcast channels: NHPBS, EXPLORE, WORLD, CREATE and PBS KIDS; programming is also broadcast on NHPBS.org and via PBS Kids. Starting in September, new programming blocks will reflect popular and specific viewer interests.
“Public television viewers are always on the lookout for inspiration, quality entertainment, and reliable information,” says Dawn DeAngelis, vice president and chief content officer at New Hampshire PBS. “We also know that viewers are busier than ever and their time is valuable. Through new themed programming, we hope to meet viewers on their own terms by highlighting the types of topics that interest them and programming them in blocks; this way, information is easier to find and plan for as part of their regular viewing experiences. »
