Arizona PBS will officially become part of Arizona State University’s journalism school in downtown Phoenix next week.

The public television station has a 53-year history with ASU, mostly on the school’s Tempe campus.

It will be moving from the university’s Office of Public Affairs to the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Arizona PBS operates three television channels along with a website. It will become part of the Cronkite school on Tuesday.

University officials say Arizona PBS will begin to serve as a “teaching hospital” for journalism students.

The Cronkite school plans to add new immersion programs in business and sports reporting within the next six months.

ASU officials say Arizona PBS reaches nearly 2 million households and has a weekly viewership of more than 1 million.
