The WNET Group. Get to Know Us.

Since 1962, The WNET Group has been introducing audiences to amazing new experiences, like how to cook French recipes with Julia Child, and providing a new lens through which to examine crucial issues, as through Black Journal.

That legacy continues today with THIRTEEN, WLIW21 and WLIW-FM, NJTV and ALL ARTS. Through our on-air and online assets, we reach millions of people with programming that celebrates arts and culture, offers insightful commentary on the news of the day, explores the worlds of science and nature, and invites students of all ages to have fun while learning.

We produce PBS series such as PBS NewsHour Weekend, Great Performances, NATURE, American Masters, and Amanpour and Company. We’ve responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with educational programs like Let’s Learn NYC! and NJTV Learning Live and Camp TV.

And we’re using new technology to deliver more and better content to the places our viewers watch; renewing our commitment to making a difference for future generations, to help preserve the quality and the inspiration on television and digital media.

These are just a few examples of The WNET Group mission: Media with Impact.
