WELCOME to PBS Appalachia!

My name is Julie Newman, and I am so excited to shine a light on Southwest Virginia...
and share that light with the world!

We're more than just a public television station at PBS Appalachia, Virginia. We're a community of storytellers, educators, and advocates for Appalachia's unique culture and people.

Our story began with a mission to bring the best of public television to the Appalachian region, providing access to high-quality programming and resources that educate, entertain, and inspire. Since then, we've grown and evolved, adapting to the changing media landscape while staying true to our mission of serving the communities we call home.
