KUSM-TV is a public broadcasting television station licensed to Montana State University in Bozeman. The station, together with KUFM-TV, licensed to The University of Montana in Missoula, comprise MontanaPBS, a statewide television service reaching over 400 communities. KUSM also offers complete television production services to on campus departments, public agencies, and, as appropriate, the private sector.

KUSM-TV/Montana PBS is under contract with the Legislative Services Division (LSD) of the state of Montana to deliver audio-visual production services that meet the statutory provisions of Title 5, Chapter 11, Part 11 MCA, and to work in collaboration with LSD to develop, operate and continually improve the Montana Public Affairs Network (MPAN) channel.
