Be More PBS. 

Right now, PBS is in the process of finding real viewers to feature in their new “Be more” on-air spots. Have AETN and PBS helped you explore new ideas or new worlds? Inspired life choices? Or helped enrich your or your children’s lives? Tell them (and the world) about it!

AETN and PBS have inspired many thousands all across the U.S. to dream bigger, stretch their brains farther and to do and be more – and that’s pretty exciting!

Take Christian, for example:

When his father was diagnosed with leukemia, Christian had to stop his education to pay the bills. But one night, an episode of  “NOVA” about evolutionary genetics inspired his curiosity … and his return to his education. And now, not only his he going to be able to pay the bills, he’s going to be able to do it while working in a field he loves.

We all probably have at least one story where AETN and PBS have inspired something important that we’d never thought of before. From ABCs and 123s to politics, health, hobbies and history, our programming provides learning material for all ages. The question is, what we will do with that learning? And when we ask that question – the simple “Why not?” – we open all sorts of doors for incredible experiences.

If you have a story to tell, we’d love to hear it! You can tell PBS directly at  PBS.org/stories or visit our Impact! Page to learn more about what we’re doing in Arkansas and give us your feedback. We’re well aware of (and very grateful for) the impact you make on our station, and we’d love to know more about how we’re helping you.
