Our Story

PBS39 (WLVT-TV) is more than just Sesame Street and Arthur. We are a 50-year young non-profit located 90 minutes from Manhattan and 60 minutes from Philadelphia in the rapidly growing Greater Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania.

While our broadcast signal reaches 12.4M from upstate New York to Cecil County, MD and from Staten Island, NY to Harrisburg, PA, our focus is on the counties that make up the Greater Lehigh Valley and their 3M+ residents.

In 2018 we launched our flagship PBS39 News Tonight which airs at 6:30 and 11pm and which has returned local news journalism to what had been a growing news desert. In addition to news, we produce weekly programs including Counter Culture, Your Take and a Spanish language show, Es Tiempo Lehigh Valley plus assorted special events and documentaries.

We host weekly free educational programs at our station in Bethlehem. We are active in literacy education through our involvement in Lehigh Valley Reads.
