Cascade Public Media

In December 2015, KCTS 9 announced a strategy to redefine itself by bringing its content to diverse media platforms in order to serve more people across multiple generations. As a demonstration and advancement of the strategy to expand regional coverage and support the need in our community for substantive local journalism, KCTS merged newsrooms with Crosscut.com, a nonprofit daily news website.

In January 2016, KCTS Television became Cascade Public Media (“CPM”), a multi-platform public media organization that includes KCTS 9 and Crosscut. The organization remains a nonprofit, community-licensed, publicly supported organization committed to supporting social and civic engagement, arts and culture and education and family initiatives.
