Leadership Circle Events

Throughout the year, KCTS 9 Leadership Circle members are invited to exclusive events that we hope will enrich your experience with us. These events often take you behind the scenes of both KCTS 9 local work and that of national content from PBS. You’ll have the opportunity to meet and mingle with folks like Ken Burns, Rick Steves, and Nick Zentner, as well as KCTS 9 personalities. In addition, you’ll get to know fellow passionate supporters of public media.
