WNIN is a public television station in Evansville, Indiana, broadcasting locally on channel 9 as a PBS member station. The station's owned by WNIN Tri-State Public Media, Inc., who also owns sister station WNIN-FM, the local NPR member station since the station signed on March 5, 1970 as the NET Network Affiliate Station.

WNIN also programs and transmits two local cable channels: WNIN Learn (cable 12) and WNIN Create (cable 13). These channels are available on two local cable operators (Insight and WOW - Wide Open West). WNIN Learn airs live local Vanderburgh County and Evansville City government meetings produced off-site inside the Carpenter House via remote-controlled cameras located in the Vanderburgh County Civic Center. WNIN Learn also airs repeats of some PBS Kids programs. WNIN Create simulcasts the national PBS Create channel which features how-to, creative and cooking programs.

The current local programs produced by WNIN include "Lawmakers" and "Newsmakers" (hosted by Evansville Courier & Press editor Mizell Stewart) and "Primetime 9" (hosted by local attorney Les Shively) which air weekly on WNIN channel 9.1 and WNIN Learn. Learning.

The station broadcasts from The Carpenter House in downtown Evansville, which is on the United States National Register of Historic Places.
