On Wednesday, Feb. 13, Governor Kim Reynolds will sign a proclamation establishing February 13 "Iowa Public Television Day" in the state of Iowa in celebration of IPTV's 50 years of educating, informing, enriching and inspiring Iowans.
"Since 1969, IPTV's mission has reached far beyond its broadcast," said IPTV Executive Director and General Manager Molly M. Phillips. "Today we are an Emmy(r) award winning television network serving two million viewers each month with four unique programming channels. But first and foremost, we are educators. We provide Iowan's lifelong learners with educational programming of lasting value, free professional development, Iowa-specific educational resources to teachers, parents and caregivers, and so much more."

Iowa's only statewide television network will mark its golden anniversary throughout 2019 with special programs and events that celebrate IPTV -- Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow... Together. IPTV's legacy is also Iowa's legacy and all Iowans are invited to take part in the celebration. Use #IPTV50 to share your favorite programs and IPTV memories on social media.
