The Minnesota Channel originates from Twin Cities Public Television (TPT). It features primarily local and regional programming related to Minnesota, some to North Dakota and Wisconsin. It includes coverage of the Minnesota Legislature when in session. Programs are frequently produced in partnership with other nonprofit and public service organizations, and several programs serve specific ethnic communities that now call Minnesota and the Twin Cities home and who are generally under-represented by commercial media.
