DPTV Media

Established in 2002, and operated by Detroit Public Television (DPTV), DPTV Media is a boutique entertainment label that introduces national and international musicians and specialty artists to North American audiences. As one of the largest producing stations in the PBS system, DPTV seeks new talent that parallels the station’s vision - to Educate, Entertain and Inspire, as well as honors the national PBS vision “Be More.”

"More" is what DPTV Media is all about. Most DPTV Media artists' titles are featured in their own Public TV special that airs nationally across the U.S. These broadcasts help to establish developing artists in North America and provide a promotional opportunity for their CD/DVD titles. Daniel O'Donnell, a PBS favorite, is a prime example of the power of Public TV. His albums continue to chart domestically.

DPTV Media utilizes the expertise of the largest independent distributor, E1 Entertainment Distribution, to ensure that artists' CDs and DVDs are easily accessible to retail consumers. A sales force of 50-plus ensures that products are placed in traditional and online retailers across the United States, and services digital retailers through North America. On the Canadian front DPTV Media partners with The Independent Label Services Group (ILS).
