WGBH Digital Services
Who We Are

We are a team of 40-50 problem solvers, creative forces, collaborative minds and innovative thinkers, with backgrounds in everything from news media to consulting, kids design and game development. We are designers, developers, content producers, project managers and marketers, who together serve as a digital agency within WGBH and public media.

What We Do

WGBH Digital Services serves as the Foundation's research, development and production team for digital experiences. We work with WGBH’s national productions and its local, marketing, kids and education units to produce media-rich websites, applications, games and other digital experiences that support our series, stations and internal departments.

We are builders, consultants, keepers of best practices and trend watchers. We create engaging user experiences that WGBH fans and users enjoy, as well as the underlying systems to serve and support those experiences. We also coordinate our digital infrastructure with our distribution partners at PBS and NPR.

We apply a user-centric approach to develop the best possible tools for public media. During any given week, we may run a design sprint, build an API, publish an iPhone/iPad app or Alexa Skill, launch a website, email newsletter, or social media campaign. WGBH Digital is here to help WGBH and public media at-large to transition into a digital-first world.
