Leadership Circle

Over half a century ago, television began the process of revolutionizing the way we view our world.

Since then, television quickly became America's most pervasive entertainment medium. Its critics have said it has fallen far short of its potential as a powerful, informative tool.

Sixty years ago, there were those in southeastern Wisconsin who recognized this disparity and believed that television should enrich the community with programs of substance and meaning.


Leadership Circle Testimonials

Through their foresight and commitment, Milwaukee PBS was born.

Like its founders, the Milwaukee PBS Leadership Circle members are major investors in Milwaukee PBS. More important, they are our counselors and ambassadors. They enable Milwaukee PBS to expand its vision of excellence and develop new programs, and to employ cutting edge telecommunications technology and find innovative ways to better serve southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
