The non-profit arm of South Dakota Public Broadcasting, Friends of SDPB pays for programming and program-related services. Funds are used for outreach efforts that enhance TV and Radio programming, including those that encourage better parenting, literacy, making healthy decisions, and encouraging life-long learning.
SDPB assists teachers by providing materials and teaching aids that enhance the classroom experience. We produce programs, in conjunction with the South Dakota Department of Education, that assist teachers and parents. SDPB presents programs that encourage better understanding of culture and heritage. We also keep listeners informed with unbiased news and information about current affairs and government. We provide comprehensive coverage of the South Dakota state legislature with live, gavel-to-gavel coverage of the legislature and its various committees.
