Channel Pittsburgh is a non-profit, streaming online
television station.

The station’s goal is to provide creative
opportunities for media artists and learning
opportunities for media students in an environment
similar to that of a local television or basic
cable channel.

(Think of Channel Pittsburgh as “a college TV
station without the college.”)

Our first locally-made series, “Pittsburgh Tempo,”
begins its second season on October 6.

The station will introduce an on-demand component
and a web store some time in the future.

Because of the COVID crises, Channel Pittsburgh
has been a one-person project. Obviously help is
needed and here are some of the station’s needs.

Pro Bono Attorney
Help the channel formally organize.
Board Members
Engaged, skilled volunteers are needed to make Channel Pittsburgh grow.
Fiscal Sponsor
Channel Pittsburgh needs a sponsor to receive support from grantmakers
and donors.

An indefinite loan of Downtown Pittsburgh space (at least 700 square feet)
for offices and studio.
Equipment & Funding
We need working computers, cameras and almost anything else you can
think of!
