Detroit Public TV Is Now Detroit PBS!

April 2024 is a momentous time in our history - during this time, we changed our name to Detroit PBS, announced our relocation to Detroit and redesigned our website. In a return to our roots, we are moving our headquarters back to Detroit to declare our commitment to serving the ‘The Most Important City in America’.

Detroit Public Television, the community-owned, nonprofit media organization that has served Southeast Michigan since 1955, is moving its headquarters back to the City of Detroit as part of a new community media campus in the Milwaukee Junction neighborhood. At the same time, we are changing our name to Detroit PBS, to demonstrate our decades-long commitment to engaging the community and to the standards of quality, trust and fairness that have been the hallmark of PBS.

We purchased the property at 234 Piquette Avenue, between John R and Brush Streets, where we will renovate and expand an existing building to serve as much more than a traditional television station. The campus will provide an ideally situated home for an organizational headquarters, video production and broadcasts, 90.9 WRCJ-FM radio production and broadcasts, arts performances, journalism hub and community events space.
