WTTW, virtual channel 11 ( UHF digital channel 47), is a PBS member television station and the primary PBS member station located in Chicago, Illinois, United States. The station is owned by not-for-profit broadcasting entity Window to the World Communications, Inc., and is sister to classical music radio station WFMT (98.7 FM). The two stations share studio facilities located at the Renée Crown Public Media Center on North Saint Louis Avenue (adjacent to Northeastern Illinois University) in the city's North Park neighborhood; WTTW maintains transmitter facilities located atop the Willis Tower on South Wacker Drive in the Chicago Loop. It also owns and operates The Chicago Production Center, a video production and editing facility that is operated alongside the two stations.
Serving as the local flagship outlet for the service, it is one of three PBS member stations in the Chicago market, alongside WYCC (channel 20) and Gary, Indiana- licensed WYIN (channel 56). WTTW, along with Wisconsin Public Television flagship station WHA-TV in Madison, Wisconsin, serve as default PBS member stations for Rockford as that market does not have a PBS station of its own; both stations are available in that market on local cable providers.
