“WSRE PBS KIDS will be an awesome destination for families in our community. Whether you are streaming the service, playing an educational game, following along with a lesson plan or watching a show on our broadcast service, the experience will be learning-filled and fun,” said Bob Culkeen, WSRE general manager.

“WSRE has been an integral part of this community for years, delivering content and services that parents trust and depend upon in early learning. This is yet another way we are contributing to ‘America’s First Early Learning City’ in Pensacola and to our broader viewing audience.”
