The Minnesota Channel features a variety of programming that is from or about Minnesota and its close neighbors. Many of the programs are produced by Twin Cities PBS, some in partnership with Minnesota’s finest nonprofit and public service organizations. Other programs are created by other Minnesota public television stations, local community producers, neighboring states’ PBS stations and acquisitions from select independent producers. The MN Channel also provides gavel to gavel coverage of the Minnesota State Legislature when in session. Lakeland’s MN Channel is available over the air on channel 9.6 in the Bemidji area, channel 22.6 in the Brainerd area, and on many cable systems throughout north central Minnesota.
