Arkansas PBS is Arkansas's only statewide public media network that not only delivers local, award-winning productions relevant to Arkansans but is one of 175 Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member stations licensed by the FCC. PBS, an affiliation of local stations around the nation, does not produce programs but aggregates programs on behalf of the member stations.
