KNME Evolves...

The folks at KNME have been doing a tremendous job, making our local PBS station one of the network's leaders in innovation and production of content that's seen nationwide.

This article from the ABQ Tribune by J.A. Montalbano opens the window a little bit to see what's inside...


KNME evolves to bring in new viewers and keep up with digital age

Public TV in Albuquerque isn't just Channel 5 anymore.

In the parlance of the day, KNME is evolving into versions 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3.

And if the digital TV revolution (coming in February 2009) is too much to drink in, you can get your highbrow fix online, YouTube-style.

New Mexico's main public TV station is a long way from just "Sesame Street" during the day and "Masterpiece Theatre" on Sunday nights.

Chad Davis, KNME's production content coordinator, said online video is one example of the direction the station is headed. For instance, viewers can watch the station's half-hour documentary "From Curandera to Chupacabra: The Stories of Rudolfo Anaya" entirely online at knmetv.org.

"That's something we have to fully explore," Davis said. "It's just too important not to be in our portfolio of services. We're not just public TV but public media."
