Eight/KAET-TV, Arizona State University's public television station, has been broadcasting since January 30, 1961. More than 80 percent of Arizonans receive our signal through a network of translators and cable systems. With more than 1.8 million viewers each week, Eight consistently ranks among the most-viewed public television stations in the country.
In addition to airing programs distributed nationally by PBS, Eight produces its own award-winning programs. Especially noteworthy are HORIZON, our nightly public affairs program, and The Arizona Collection, a continuing series that explores the land, history and people of Arizona. Among the programs in this series are Over Arizona; Barry Goldwater: Photographs & Memories; Thieves of Time; Seasons of a Navajo; River of Stone; and Kolb Brothers: Grand Canyon Pioneers.
Eight is a trusted community resource that enriches the lives of all Arizonans through quality programs and education services that inform, inspire and delight.
We specialize in the education of children, unbiased news & public affairs, lifelong learning, and the celebration of arts and culture. We accomplish this through the power of noncommercial television, the Internet, other media, educational outreach services, and other community-based initiatives.
In partnership with Arizona State University, Eight serves as a trusted, independent catalyst for community involvement.
