The Mission of WGCU Public Media

Quote Image

To inspire, inform, educate, engage and entertain through the power of public media.

WGCU Public Media is Southwest Florida’s source for PBS and NPR, and a member-supported service of Florida Gulf Coast University.

WGCU provides quality programming 24 hours a day and is a trusted storyteller, teacher, theater, library and traveling companion.

Serving all or part of 12 counties in south and Southwest Florida with five distinct digital TV channels, three radio services, and multiple digital media platforms, WGCU delivers national and international programming, as well as develops and produces award-winning relevant, informative and educational local content.



WGCU is a member of the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network (FPREN), whose member stations stay on the air during serious weather events or other emergencies to keep citizens up to date on news and safety information.

WGCU’s broadcast programs, along with community and education initiatives, make public media vital to Southwest Florida. In addition, WGCU is reaching beyond its service area to the country and the world through its website and app.



WGCU as part of Florida Gulf Coast University is committed to establishing and maintaining an inclusive working and learning environment in which students, faculty, administrators, staff, curriculum, social activities, governance, and all other aspects of the campus life reflect a diverse, multi-cultural, and international worldview.
