NEW IDENTITY FOR NEW HAMPSHIRE’S PBS STATION
New Hampshire Public Television is changing its name to New Hampshire PBS on October 1, 2017. The change in name recognizes the strong relationship viewers express between New Hampshire Public Television and PBS.
“New Hampshire Public Television has been a trusted source of high-quality, commercial free programming for the Granite State since it first went on the air in 1959. Our programs and services have evolved dramatically since then. We are now a multi-media provider of five broadcast channels, online streaming video, education and community services. The affinity with PBS is in the minds of our viewers. We believe our new, fresh look reflects that,” said station President & CEO Peter Frid.
“New Hampshire PBS showcases the great programming and services our community members love and rely on,” Frid continued. “Icon series like NOVA, Nature, Great Performances and Masterpiece, children’s programming, documentaries, dramas, British series and how-to programming are part of our offerings. Our award-winning local programs like Windows to the Wild hosted by Willem Lange, our high school quiz show, Granite State Challenge hosted by Jim Jeanotte and Our Hometown hosted by Rebecca Rule are all in production for new seasons.
The new identity also carries over to the station’s main channels. NHPTV PRIME will become NHPBS and NHPTV EXPLORE will become NHPBS EXPLORE. To see NHPBS’ five channels and program lineup, visit nhpbs.org/schedule
