In 2009 the Boards of Trustees of ThinkTV and CET (public television in Cincinnati) formed Public Media Connect (PMC), Inc., a non-profit public broadcasting media corporation. PMC is our communities’ largest classroom for young learners, the most accessible stage for the arts and cultural performances, and the most trusted source for public affairs and informational programs. ThinkTV’s mission is to strengthen the communities we serve through content and services that inspire and inform, educate and engage, fostering citizenship and culture, the joy of learning and the power of diverse perspectives. This Dayton Original provides a wide variety of programming that informs, inspires, and delights audiences of all ages!
