Enlighten | IPTV 50th Anniversary

Jul 31, 2019  | 7 min  | 

For children, Iowa Public Television is a storyteller and teacher.  For families, we are a trusted place – an important friend that shares many of the same values.  For adults, we are a source of childlike wonder and lifetime learning.

One thing is for sure, no one is going to tell the stories that IPTV tells. NO ONE. Iowa is our calling. Our stories take a close look at the people who paved the way for our state, have passed through our borders and who live here today.

We share those stories over the air and online. Hours of research and planning go into telling those stories.  Many of the locally produced documentaries and series work that you have enjoyed over the years have earned recognition with national and regional Emmy awards. We are proud to put our work in place with the rest of the programming that you can access 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
