Buffalo Toronto Public Media (BTPM) – Your Public Broadcasting Station

For 60 years, BTPM has been the public broadcaster serving Western New York and Southern Ontario. Over time, your public broadcasting association earned, and has sustained, a reputation for being an important community institution delivering consistently high-quality, diverse, and dependable programming. Children’s programs provide a safe haven that makes learning fun. News reporting remains objective and balanced. Buffalo Toronto Public Media shines as the alternative to the continually declining quality of commercial stations and numerous cable networks.

Remaining true to public broadcasting’s core values, Buffalo Toronto Public Media is a trusted public media resource that enriches its audiences by providing educational, entertaining programming and services, as well as engaging the Western New York and Southern Ontario communities through cultural and civic involvement. This mission is manifested in our WNED PBS television staples like DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, PBS NEWSHOUR, THIS OLD HOUSE, MASTERPIECE, NOVA, and FRONTLINE, in the notes of the finest classical music available 24 hours a day on WNED Classical, through the indie alternative heard on WBFO The Bridge, and seen in the educational children’s programs on WNED PBS KIDS. Our roster of stations also includes DIY programs from WNED Create, and the in-depth and objective reporting of national and international news & information found on WBFO, your NPR station.

When strengthened by membership, BTPM embodies a community. This community includes you. We are very grateful for your support over the years and ask that you “endow” your yearly contribution with a legacy gift that keeps your membership active far, far into the future.

Buffalo Toronto Public Media (BTPM), by mandate, honors the public trust. By mission, it is making known the public treasures, important moments, natural wonders, scientific advances and the ethnic diversity that are our pride and history.

Marrying broadcast technology and equal educational opportunity, BTPM is transporting lifelong learning into the next generation of viewers and listeners. Through our digital capacity, kids, parents, and teachers in Western New York and Southern Ontario can transform a television screen into a classroom. A myriad of programs and outreach activities advance knowledge in health, fitness, music, the arts, travel, history, politics, nature, science, and the universe. Securing this classroom of the future for all, free of charge, is a critical need for our communities.

Legacy dollars secure a seamless future for television and radio that is unfettered by the demands of the commercialism.
