WQED Multimedia champions communities by telling stories and creating experiences that educate, entertain and inspire our neighbors and friends in Pittsburgh and across southwestern Pennsylvania.

Looking forward, we aim to become known as more than a broadcaster as we enrich communities through education and storytelling.
