Mission Statement: KUED is Utah's Best Storyteller
KUED is Utah's premier public broadcasting station airing quality programs 24 hours a day. We offer the full PBS schedule including PBS Kids, the number one educational media brand; an instructional television block that meets core curriculum standards; and award-winning, locally-produced television programs and documentaries. KUED is recognized as one of the leading public television stations in the country. KUED is the first station to ever win the Rocky Mountain Emmy Award of Excellence for the Best Overall TV Station, a major recognition of the station's commitment to serve the community through its productions and outreach programs.
Storyteller role: Our point of difference from other local media companies is that we tell stories.
Quality content: Our legacy, charter and new digital platforms give us the opportunity to do this better than any other media entity in Utah.
Scope of services: Utah provides a wealth of story potential both current and past, as well as future.
KUED signed on the air January 9, 1958 and is a 501 c (3) not-for-profit institution licensed to the University of Utah. KUED has two other digital channels as well, KUED World and KUED V-me.
