Local TV Production
Producing local programs that connect OPB viewers with their community is a key part of our mission as a public broadcaster. OPB’s local productions provide a point of discussion where citizens can come together to learn about each other and the world we share.
Whether it's a new artist featured on Oregon Art Beat, exploring new strategies to address invasive species on Oregon Field Guide, or a look back at the people and events that have shaped our state on Oregon Experience, OPB's local producers are committed to bringing you programs that are fact-based, insightful and representative of a variety of perspectives.
