Eight specializes in the education of children, in-depth news and public affairs, lifelong learning, and the celebration of arts and culture — utilizing the power of noncommercial television, the Internet, educational outreach services, and community-based initiatives. The PBS station began broadcasting from the campus of Arizona State University on January 30, 1961. Now more than 80 percent of Arizonans receive the signal through a network of translators, cable and satellite systems. With more than 1.3 million viewers each week, Eight consistently ranks among the most-viewed public television stations per capita in the country. Arizonans provide more than 60 percent of the station's annual budget. Eight is located on the ASU campus in downtown Phoenix.
Our daily children's programming helps children start school ready to learn. Arizona Pre K-12 students benefit from outreach programs and educator professional development distributed by ASSET, Eight's educational outreach unit. Eight's GED programs help adults get their high school diplomas, and many students earn college credits through Eight, Arizona PBS telecourses. LiteracyLink helps adults build the basic skills for lifelong learning. We also offer intern and employment opportunities for approximately 50 Arizona State University students who receive hands-on training working with our professional staff.
