Founded fifty years ago, WETA has earned a reputation for keeping the nation informed about ongoing developments in Washington and around the world. Programs developed and produced by WETA are at the core of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) the American people have come to depend on.
With national broadcasts produced at WETA’s studios like The PBS NewsHour and Washington Week with Gwen Ifill, WETA is the flagship public broadcaster in the nation’s capital, and the third-largest producing station in the public television system.
WETA-TV was one of the first stations in the country to broadcast high definition in 1999, and four-channel multicast digital broadcasts in 2002. In 2008, WETA’s TV Studios began offering high definition live and taped broadcast productions from two state of the art control rooms.
