WHYY is our community. WHYY is you.

We’re more than you may know…

WHYY-TV 12 is renowned for educational TV for children. We’re known for engrossing British dramas, celebrated cooking shows, national and international news plus other rich PBS programming.

WHYY-FM 90.9 is also well known for providing fact-based and trustworthy news through NPR and a team of reporters covering the Greater Philly region.

Programs and resources for kids, teachers, parents and caregivers

But we’re more than Sesame Street. In our mission to serve everyone in our community, we offer after-school programs for high schoolers, teaching them how to produce short documentaries and create original radio stories. Check out all of our educational offerings during the school year and beyond.

Most recently, we joined with our Pennsylvania PBS partners to share Learning at Home, specifically created to support students, teachers, parents and caregivers during these unique times, with educational and entertaining videos during the day on WHYY-TV 12, supported by online resources.

Bringing communities together

Our WHYY News reporters and editors engage in community conversations, sharing perspectives from locals as well as political leaders and subject matter experts. It’s an imperative for WHYY to interact with neighborhoods to hear and share their voices.
