KRCB first went on the air December 2, 1983, with a broadcast of the PBS show NOVA. Conceived as "Public Television for the North Bay," KRCB now broadcasts to much of the San Francisco Bay Area through satellite and cable television carriage.
In one of the most crowded areas in the U.S. for PBS and public broadcasting, KRCB is notable for its coverage of local news and politics, and for the Emmy and Telly Award-winning, nationally distributed environmental series, Natural Heroes.
KRCB also engages the community through local initiatives like the NEA's Big Read, Tengo La Voz - I Have The Voice, and The Best Seat in the House Festival.
Much of the regular programming comes from PBS, American Public Television, and independent producers.
