World View, Community Voice.
Those words are more to us than just our tag line — they guide our content choices, inspire our partnerships, and remind us that everyday — we have the privilege of welcoming your voice into our public media service to Colorado.
Since 1979, viewers like you have helped us to broaden our programming service by sharing your life experiences, your views on local and global events and your commitment to nurture the hearts and minds of our young people. Together, we’ve addressed our community’s toughest challenges through local content that welcomes diverse perspectives with sensitivity and integrity. Together, we champion our triumphs and our trials. This is the relationship we have built with you and it reflects the respect we have for your viewpoints and your values.
- We launched a new programming service to Colorado called FNX (First Nations Experience), bringing our viewers a rich array of documentaries, dramas, dialog and artistry from Native American and Pacific Islander experiences. In 2016, we created local content in partnership with members of our Native American community that augments this programming service on channel 12.2.
- Wednesday nights are curated around alternative ideas and critical thinking. Every Wednesday night, tune in to our channel 12.1 for newly acquired, independent documentaries that will enlighten, challenge, entertain and inspire. We have a robust history of acquiring and producing programs that confront the status quo and we’re adding even more.
- Kids matter more than ever. We’ve continued our work as a national partner in the American Graduate initiative, seeking to improve graduation rates among our young people, particularly those living in poverty. We produced an American Graduate documentary, “Power of Story” that helped to elevate student voices. Plus, we’re celebrating student achievement through our Both Sides of the Story series and in our award-winning line up of children’s programming every day.
- Promoting a stronger Colorado. We believe that when Colorado’s non-profit community is well supported, we all benefit. For the seventh consecutive year, CPT12 has served as a media partner for Colorado Gives Day, producing promotional spots to encourage statewide giving and promoting small nonprofits with our Media Prize.
Working together we can move the needle in so many positive directions, and we look forward to another year of sharing experiences and building even greater connections to those whose life experiences and perspectives are different from our own. Please stay tuned, stay engaged and let us know how you think we’re doing. Your voice matters and we’re listening.
