“Every community and every person has a story to tell.”  

Urbana Public Television is dedicated to the proposition that all communities should have the ability to tell their own stories. We support the creative use of video to tell stories and share ideas important to our community, from talk shows to music, from meetings to local sports, art and comedy and drama and more

Through our collaborations with local citizen-producers, UPTV provides access to the tools, the training, and the airtime that make telling our stories possible. Sharing these stories helps to build common understanding and common values within our community.  Free access to free speech through independent community media is ever more crucial to sustaining a healthy democracy.  It connects us to each other.

Public access also enables local organizations, businesses, non-profits and charities to better serve our communities. UPTV is a prime platform for publicizing and promoting their work.

We encourage you to help us in our work with a tax-deductible contribution in support of UPTV via the Community Foundation by clicking here.  Be sure to type "Urbana Public Television" or "UPTV" in the designation field.

We also invite local businesses and organizations to let our viewers know they support UPTV’s work through an on-air underwriting sponsorship announcement. Contact UPTV Station Manager Jake Schumacher for more information about underwriting rates and policies.

Thank you very much for your support!
