The Producers Club is a diverse group of philanthropic individuals and families committed to sustaining KPBS' ability to reach beyond the status quo — on television, on radio, and online. Producers Club members share the distinction of being KPBS' most generous annual contributors, giving $1,200 or more each year to strengthen the impact of public broadcasting. More importantly, they are our counselors and ambassadors. They enable KPBS to expand its vision of excellence, to develop new programs, and to employ cutting-edge telecommunications technologies to find innovative ways of better serving San Diego residents.

Producers Club members enjoy many special opportunities, including By-Invitation-Only events with on air personalities, advance notice of upcoming projects and programs of special interest and more.

To our Producers Club Family,

We are here for you, and want to thank you for your support of KPBS.

KPBS has seen a monumental increase in viewership as communities all over San Diego County rely on us for continued updates on the coronavirus pandemic. This has prompted us to expand our news coverage to seven days a week from five days a week. Offering this extended, vital coverage wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of you, our most loyal members.

You are the glue that holds our station together, and you’re the reason KPBS is one of the highest-rated public media stations in the country. Through these unprecedented times, we want to assure you that KPBS will continue to share stories, and invite conversation that builds on our sense of community, and delivers the facts. We hope that you’ll continue to agree that KPBS is where story matters.

Thank you for supporting San Diego’s need for quality journalism. Please contact us at and let us know how we can help you during this time.

Important Event Information

We will explore the idea of hosting KPBS Producers Club in-person events once our state and local public health orders for gatherings are lifted AND when we have a clear idea of what protocols, guidelines, or safety measures we will need to adopt in order to create a safe in-person event for our attendees and staff.

RSVP is requested for all Producers Club events. For more information, please contact us at
