Bounty. Bingeing. Fall. Welcome here.


Wow! Did the first of October catch anyone else by surprise? In the blink of an eye, we are back in the season of football games, changing colors, fall harvesting of gardens, and the annual Halloween candy aisle in our grocery stores. Our kids are back in school, and any travel or leisure activities seem to take place closer to home.

Cooler weather invites us to enjoy our parks and gardens, and in the evening, settle into our evenings nestled into our favorite chair while we take a mental journey with a great book or a great program on Colorado Public Television.

Do you love to fall into great music? We’ve got you covered with the new Ken Burns’ special series, COUNTRY MUSIC, as well as AUSTIN CITY LIMITS, and our own local series, SOUNDS ON 29TH. And don’t forget, being a CPT12 Passport member provides you with an incredible library of music programming, both on the national stage and on our local scene.

Fall also means pumpkins, caramel apples and Halloween candy (that we said we bought for the kids). Colorado foodies, you are always front and center with MEXICO – ONE PLATE AT A TIME WITH RICK BAYLESS, CONFUCIUS WAS A FOODIE and literally hundreds of hours of cooking shows on CPT12 Passport.

Enjoy trying different perspectives with the change in seasons? Check out our own local series, STREET LEVEL: COMMUNITY to see how five influential Coloradans spend their work and play time. Where do you relax and refuel?

We do our best to create a virtual cornucopia for every stage of life and a banquet of offerings because YOU are the reason that 30 dedicated people come to work every day at CPT12. We cultivate a bountiful, programming garden comprised of great variety because we do not believe that one size fits all. We are home-grown public television, built by Colorado and supported by the people who live and thrive here.

We are locally programmed, with a broadcast schedule and digital streaming site that is responsive to feedback from local audiences. Welcome home.
