Vermont PBS (VPBS) is the PBS member network for the state of Vermont. Originally owned and operated by the University Of Vermont, the network has been operating since October 16, 1967. Eventually, UVM sold off the station to Vermont ETV, Inc., a community-based nonprofit group. Until 1997, it was known as Vermont Educational Television, or Vermont ETV (which is still the station's corporate name). Between 1997 and May 2014, it was known as Vermont Public Television or VPT.
