KVIE is the local PBS station in Sacramento, California, USA. It operates on VHF channel 6. Its transmitter is located near Walnut Grove, California. The station broadcasts from a 2000 foot (610 meter) tall tower owned by KTXL. The VI in the station's call letters stand for the Roman numeral 6 and the E stands for "education".Fact|date=September 2007

KVIE's audio signal can be heard on 87.7 MHz on the FM dial in Sacramento and surrounding areas. This is because the audio signal of channel 6 is located at 87.75 MHz. This frequency assignment applies to all channel 6 television stations in countries using the NTSC-M standard.

KVIE signed on the air on February 23, 1959. During its early years, it operated daily only in the afternoons and evenings (during the school year) and nearly all day on the weekends. By the end of the 1970s it was on all day throughout, and in the mid-1980s moved to 24-hour-a-day programming.

In addition to PBS programming, KVIE produces in-house programs for distribution locally, regionally and nationwide, such as " [http://www.americasheartland.org America's Heartland] ", " [http://www.kvie.org/viewfinder ViewFinder] ", "Central Valley Chronicles", and " [http://www.californiaheartland.org California Heartland] ".

Like other PBS stations, KVIE has held many fund-raising events. For over three decades until the early 1990s, it held an annual auction during the early summer months from many different venues, and emceed by numerous personalities from Sacramento broadcasting. The station's annual art auction has been on the air for more than 25 years and has been airing recently in September for three days. The station also has pledge drives throughout the year covering approximately 70 days of the year with the majority of it in the months of March, June, August and December.

Among KVIE's personalities have been former news anchors George Reading and Pat McConahay, former weather anchor Bette Vasquez, and Christina Dillon (the only key personality from the annual auction who still appears on KVIE today).

The station is independently owned and operated, governed by a volunteer board of directors.
