Arizona PBS Moves to ASU’s Cronkite School

WArizona PBS, the public television based at Arizona State University, will officially become part of ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication July 1.

Arizona PBS, which includes three TV channels and azpbs.org, had been part of ASU’s Office of Public Affairs. With the transfer, the school intends to use the station as a “teaching hospital,” according to ASU.

“A leading journalism school joining forces with one of the nation’s largest PBS stations at a university known globally for its leadership in innovation is a powerful and potentially game-changing combination,” ASU president Michael M. Crow said in a statement. “We will be able to serve Arizonans on new levels while providing a national testing ground for new approaches to digital storytelling, audience engagement and revenue models to help serve a news industry that needs to rapidly adapt in the fast-changing digital world.”
