Buffalo Toronto Public Media serves the people of Western New York and Southern Ontario with a community-supported alternative to commercial media. We provide our audiences with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions; convene community dialogue; bring the arts to everyone; and engage individuals to share their stories. We help teachers, students and their parents thrive in 21st century classrooms, and take people of all ages on a journey of exploration—exposing them to new people, places and ideas.

We celebrate diversity, embrace innovation, value lifelong learning and partner with those who share our passion for public service.
