From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Public Media Connect, Inc. is a non-profit organization that owns southwest Ohio's largest PBS member television stations. It was formed in 2009[1] from the merger of the Greater Cincinnati Television Educational Foundation, which operates WCET in Cincinnati under the "CET" brand, and Greater Dayton Public Television, whose "ThinkTV" brand is shared by WPTD in Dayton and WPTO in Oxford, along with translators in Celina and Maplewood. CET and ThinkTV continue to operate as subsidiary non-profits under the Public Media Connect umbrella organization.[2] Combined, the three stations serve a potential audience of 3.3 million people in Ohio and Kentucky.

The three stations maintain separate productions, control staff and program schedules, and also conduct separate fundraising efforts. Public Media Connect enables the stations to pool resources.
