What You'll Get

While public-television networks benefit from local involvement, public-television sets rarely reach the two-thirds majority required to change the channel. Reap the benefits of mass approval with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of books, DVDs, and collectibles purchased online from Shop WQED.

An Emmy Award–winning station, WQED was founded in 1954 as the nation’s first community-supported public broadcaster. WQED's online shop catalogues Pittsburgh-centric products and programs intended to educate the community and beyond. Rick Sebak's Pittsburgh A–Z characterizes the local culture with a series of pieces using the journalist's trademark narrative style and personalized alphabet starting with the letter R ($19.95). Sports merchandise, such as the book The Chief: Art Rooney and His Pittsburgh Steelers ($28.95), document athletic narratives without boring halftime performances or off-season doldrums, while the Things That Aren't There Anymore DVD ($19.95) and Bike Rides Out of Pittsburgh: Over 425 Rides from .6 to 110 Miles ($20.00) provide guides for the local everyman.

Families can increase toddler entertainment libraries with a table-height stack of Mister Rogers DVDs, including a copy of Adventures in Friendship casually dressed in a reproduction of the lauded performer's crimson cardigan ($17.98). The eclectic site also features ornaments of Pittsburgh landmarks and a line of kits, shampoos, and hamburger paintings created by Pittsburghers.

All orders from Shop WQED go to support public broadcasting in the greater Pittsburgh area, helping to fund WQED and its radio and television stations. This Groupon is also valid for clearance merchandise. Customers can order online, but ex-violinists craving a replacement chin cradle can also order by phone.
