If you’re feeling frazzled because yours kids favorite tv show went off, relax. On Monday, PBS is launching a new 24/7 kids channel.
The new channel, which is strictly for kids, will include shows like Daniel Tiger, Sesame Street, and Ready, Jet, Go!
Tanya Schripsema is the program director for CMU Public Television. She said the new channel will keep the same educational mission as the primary channel.
“It is very exciting for us to give children the opportunity to watch quality programming with their families,during the primetime hours, after school, and during the weekend.”
Schripsema said improved technology allows CMU Public TV to offer the new children’s channel AND CONTINUE to offer the main channel – with shows like Poldark, Masterpiece and Nova, that they’ve been running for nearly 50-years.
For information on the new TV offerings, you can contact CMU PUblic TV at 800-727-9268. Or go online to WCMU dot org for the full program schedule.
