Updating Create

Changes are coming to Create TV, and we think you’ll like them.

As Southwest Florida’s source for all things PBS, the changes are coming to WGCU, too. Look for more lifestyle content, from fitness to food, beginning January 3. Broadcast hours for WGCU Create are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. (At other times, it’s the Encore channel.)

Fan favorites Bob Ross and Rick Steves will receive their own regular spots in the schedule, making room for more painting and travel shows. Create will also expand its how-to offerings to include fitness (yoga and stretching) programming on weekend mornings, joining the channel’s healthy-cooking content.

While food and travel shows weave through every day, segmented arts and crafts content will now air at least five times each weekday — making it easier for painting and needle arts enthusiasts to find their favorite shows. Weekend marathons are now known as Create Weekly Showcases.
