East Tennessee PBS’ vision is to develop meaningful relationships with every member of our community that provide new insights, inspiration and information that empower them today and for years to come.
East Tennessee PBS understands that substantial and sustainable growth can only be achieved through the collaboration of the entire organization and are united with a consistent message. East Tennessee PBS has five main areas of focus, areas we believe we can have impact in our community because we understand the subject and can deliver on the promise of each.
These areas of focus are the pillars we rely on to achieve our mission and vision:
Our focus is to provide quality programming not found anywhere else. We also strive to serve our community and its needs. We're committed to being an active community partner that affects positive change. We believe that together with our award-winning programming, our community partners and our dedicated staff we can achieve anything.
While we invest our resources in initiatives that improve the lives of those living in this great community, we dedicate most of our time and energy to educational projects that make learning available to all.
