2017 Doors Open Milwaukee

Milwaukee PBS - September 23, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Milwaukee PBS is delighted to participate in the 7th annual Doors Open Milwaukee. The public is invited to visit the station and learn more about what it takes to bring Milwaukee PBS programming and events to viewers.

Visitors will get a behind-the-scenes look at Milwaukee PBS. Along with a brief tour, they will get a chance to be on camera and learn about locally-produced programs and some of the upcoming fall broadcasts including Ken Burns’ The Vietnam War.

In 1950 Milwaukee Area Technical College (then called Milwaukee Vocational and Adult Schools) along with other area organizations proposed an educational television system. In 1957 that proposal became a reality. Milwaukee PBS began 60 years ago with two hours of programming each night. It was the nation's 28th educational television channel.

Today Milwaukee PBS produces six local shows that cover Milwaukee, the surrounding area, and Wisconsin. These programs cover important issues, local communities, the arts, the outdoors and more. Our latest news and public affairs program, 10thirtysix, highlights a mix of topics that educate, inform and inspire. Channels 10 and 36 also broadcast local specials and national PBS programming. Visit milwaukeepbs.org for information on local and national programs and events. Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.

This October Milwaukee PBS will begin broadcasting four of its programs in a new format. Each Thursday on Milwaukee PBS 10 at 9 pm you’ll get to see one locally-produced show. Watch Milwaukee PBS Presents --Black Nouveu, !Adelante!, 10thirtysix and The Arts Page one each Thursday, each month. Around the Corner with John McGivern and Outdoor Wisconsin will round out the local line-up.
