Minnesotans really love their TPT. For the second year in a row the Twin Cities has the largest percentage of households watching public television than anywhere else in the country. Baltimore is second and Portland is third.

"It's a real tribute to the Twin Cities that audiences here so passionately embrace public TV," said TPT's COO Terry O'Reilly. "At a time when all media outlets are facing declining audiences, more and more Minnesotans are not just watching TPT, but joining us as members."
