Smoky Hills PBS’s mission is to provide the region with programming and services that nourishes our curiosity, enriches our lives, and makes Kansas a better place to live and work. For over 37 years now, Smoky Hills PBS has been striving to follow that mission in central and western Kansas. Smoky Hills PBS provides programming to over 14 cable operators in 194 communities in this region along with direct broadcast satellite through Dish Network and DirecTV. With our four transmitters, our signal reaches into 70 counties, including the cities of Hutchinson and Wichita, offering programming to over 1.2 million potential viewers.
Smoky Hills PBS was named KAB Non-Metro Station of the Year in 2019. Our station is proud of our local productions and our Literacy Leadership project where we provide books to children across our coverage area.
