Development & Membership
WTJX Channel 12, is now almost 40 years old, and we have seen a major growth spurt within this past decade, thanks to all of you who support us, and the wonderful men and women who work so tirelessly to make us Be More….
We are More Channels … Our Television broadcast has made a quantum leap from one analog channel to four digital channels within the last four years, to provide you with more quality viewing options. We can now be seen on the ICC cable system on Channels 90, 91, 92, and 93 as well as on Channel 12.
Channel 90 is our local blend
91 is our PBS Kids
92 is your PBS signature Programs
and 93 is the Education Station
We have more buildings … On St.Croix we have moved from two cramped rooms, which was our home for over 10 years, to a full fledged operation, now with a large multi use parking lot.
We have more out reach … WTJX has provided all public schools with the phenomenal Learn 360 internet based program . Over the past two school years we have had more than 36,000 hits per year and an average of 10,000 plus logins. Learn 360 poster and we are more engaging … with our own Mascot, Langford, which has entertained visitors and locals alike, at Back to School and Kids Clubs Activities and Obesity campaign outreach events.
At WTJX, we still believe that everyone should read more … Our monthly Take Twelve Magazine is sought after and our E-newsletter is read voraciously by supporters at home and abroad. We are keeping pace with the new social media to keep you informed in this fast paced world. To ensure that you find us in more places ... we have a presence on the World Wide Web at www.wtjx.org, Facebook www.facebook.com/wtjx, Twitter www.twitter.com/wtjx, Youtube www.youtube.com/wtjx, we stream our programs live on www.wtjx.org, and we have launched podcasts of Newsline340 on iTunes for all the world to see!
WTJX has stepped up the quantity and quality of the programs that we produce and broadcast. We bring you so much more…
In August 2009 WTJX launched our weekend news Magazine – Newsline 340 now seen on Sundays at 6.00pm. Closely following Newsline340, we launched the Rediscover Series beginning with “Rediscover St. Croix” which airs on Sundays at 7.00pm. The Painting with Pastels Series brought a splash of more color to WTJX and is now seen weekly as well. Joining this line up in 2011 we have added Ritmo del Doce to address our Hispanic community.
For the past six years we have brought you more tastes at our major fundraising activity with the Taste of Two Islands supported by the food and beverage community on St.Thomas and St.John, followed by more fun with none other than, what has become more than an annual holiday shindig, Stanley and the Ten Sleepless Knights Fore Day Serenade and 24 hours of local Christmas programs on Christmas Day.
We are more than the broadcaster of St.Croix Festival, St.Thomas Carnival and Fourth of July Parades; we are a part of it.
Public media has a growing role to play in facilitating the civic dialogue and participation essential to healthy communities. Helping our community to become more healthy we deliver our Eat Right Exercise for Life Campaign and our Home Grown program. To be more energy efficient we deliver the Greens and to be more politically aware we bring you to unbiased political choices.
More than ever, as new media technologies continue to emerge, our diverse communities need public media as trusted conveners and collaborators in community life. clips of faces in the community from face to face And Public Media, WTJX, your local PBS station, needs your support to continue to be the catalyst for awareness and positive change.
But despite all our best efforts, to be more … we could never accomplish what we do if we try to go it alone. We must collaborate with others to integrate our community engagement thinking and initiatives like our Home Grown Program and our VI National Park Documentary and our Stanley and the Ten Sleepless Knights in Denmark Documentary.
