Shows like Live Green Tennessee, Jammin' at Hippie Jacks, the Smithville Jamboree, Bluegrass Underground, the Great TV Auction and more - they all have a positive impact on tourism and the local economy.

"WCTE is your community-owned Upper Cumberland PBS station. It broadcasts quality programming, provides educational outreach, is an award-winning station, has an incredibly talented staff, is engaged in the communities it serves, has a dedicated and active board, and is more than worthy of viewer support. On a personal note, the station has been my employer for many years. I am honored to be part of the WCTE family. "

"Having a public television station like WCTE is an amazing accomplishment for the Upper Cumberland. The station has grown, not only with the programs it produces but also in how it broadcasts, staying current and relevant. The Upper Cumberland is filled with folks who want to know what is going on in the community, the state, and the world. Public television provides that information in an interesting, accurate, and fresh format. "

"This community and region are enriched by the presence of Public Television. WCTE brings the world to the region in a very special way, and also provides really high quality local programming."

"It is interesting to watch how the station has developed over the years. It started out with just a small group of dedicated, underpaid, overworked people dealing with local issues. Now, it impacts the entire region and is seen throughout the world"
