KSMQ’s 40th Anniversary
KSMQ Public Television began in 1972 as an educational broadcast training facility that ran 90 minutes of programming a day. In 40 years, the station has blossomed into a professional television outlet that brings quality public broadcasting to over 655,000 households in our region. Last year we broadcasted nearly 33,000 hours of programming on four channels: KSMQ, MHz Worldview, Create, and the Minnesota Channel.
To celebrate our 40 year history, KSMQ is inviting you to share your stories of how public television and KSMQ have impacted your life for the better. Below are some videos of people in our communities who have sent their good wishes to the station. Share your story. Email or call us at 800-658-2539.
We are also celebrating our 40th anniversary by offering a special membership level to our viewers this year. For donating $40 to KSMQ you will become a member of the station and receive the KSMQ MemberCard which gives you dining and lodging discounts and even rate reductions to many golf resorts and other recreational and entertainment facilities. In addition you'll also receive your choice of either a thermal travel mug, or a notepad/pen set as our thank you gift to you. You'll also receive the Fine Tuning Guide to plan your monthly viewing schedule.
The continued support from our viewers makes KSMQ possible. We need you now more than ever. Become a member today and help us continue to provide quality programming for our region.
