About Nine PBS

Nine PBS


Igniting the spirit of possibility.


We envision a strong and healthy community working together through public media.


We engage our community through quality content because it strengthens civic life. We remain independent because we believe it is the basis of trust. We are committed to engagement because it fosters a healthy community. We believe in making our content easily accessible, because the more people we engage, the greater our value becomes. We want to create sound business models, because we want to continue our good work. We want to connect our citizens with one another because we believe it is important to bring St. Louis together. We believe that when we succeed in our mission, we ignite the spirit of possibility in St. Louis.
