KPBS is a public broadcasting organization based in San Diego, California. Both the television (KPBS-TV) and radio (KPBS-FM) broadcasts started as KEBS. EBS stood for Educational Broadcasting Service. The call letters were changed to KPBS in 1970, one year after the creation of PBS.

KPBS-TV is not part of the famed "big three" group of Los Angeles network flagship stations (KCBS-TV, KNBC, KABC & KUPN); its call letters merely express the nature of the station's programming and affiliation.

Like Watertown, New York's WPBS-TV (PBS has no special affiliation with either), KPBS-TV is a border station -- in this case, serving viewers in both the US and Mexico.
