Authority for Educational Television
- Came on the air
in 1984 as the coastal affiliate of Public Radio in
Mississippi. In 2005 the radio and educational television
divisions were rebranded as Mississippi Public Broadcasting. The
network garnered some notoriety in the summer of 2010 when it
abruptly dropped the Fresh Air program after comic Louis CK
talked openly about sex. It quietly re-added the program after
the furor died down. In July 2013 the station relegated all
music programming to the HD-2 subchannel, leaving all news and talk
on the main analog/HD-1 channel.
