Northwest Public Television with its main office and studios located in Pullman, Wash., (KWSU-TV) is
among the oldest broadcast stations of its kind, having begun operation in 1962. Instructional television began as
part of the WSU Libraries in 1967 and was moved to KWSU Radio-Television Services creating a complete audio/video
telecommunications department (Murrow Public Media).
KTNW-TV, located in Tri-Cities, Wash., was established by
local community support matched by a U.S. Department of Commerce equipment grant. Its studios are located at the
Tri-Cities branch campus of WSU. The addition of KTNW doubled the audience for the service.
This October, KWSU-TV
will begin broadcasting its signal in Spokane, Wash., once again nearly doubling NWPTV’s potential viewership.
The combined services, now known as Northwest Public Television, provide a regional source of information, arts,
culture and public affairs programming to enhance the quality of life in the communities served. Northwest Public
Radio is a joint licensee with NWPTV.
KWSU Media is the video production division for KWSU and KTNW public television, producing programming from both of
the production studio facilities mentioned above.
