- Came on the air in
August of 1974, serving the northeastern part of Mississippi on VHF
analog channel 12. In the 90s, the station broadcast with a
directional antenna towards Corinth and and New Albany. The
station later went non-directional. After the digital
transition, the station returned to RF channel 12. On 12 December 2016 the MPB
network of stations dropped the SD version of PBS and moved the HD to
the -.1 space, making room for PBS Kids, which was said to debut
sometime in the first quarter of 2017.
