Wisconsin Public Television has changed its name to PBS Wisconsin.
The announcement was made Monday.
“We are excited by this new opportunity to better connect our essential local programs, in-school education work, and community engagement with the well-known and well-trusted brand of PBS, a strong partner of our work here in Wisconsin for 50 years.”
WHA-TV signed on in Madison in 1954. A network of stations across the state was developed in the 1970s, and those stations became Wisconsin Public Television in the 1980s.
