Abstract: In this study, human and non-human resources for educational content broadcasting at television stations in North Central Nigeria were appraised. Descriptive survey research design was adopted for this study and five research questions guided the study. Facilities in three randomly selected stations were assessed using checklist while heads of section who served as participants were interacted with in order to collect further data needed for the investigation. The researchers-designed checklist was validated by two educational technology experts and two media specialists. It comprised of five sections (sections A, B, C, and D & E). Section A consists of 10 items on academic qualifications of media personnel available at the stations. Section B and C consists of 15 items each on availability and functionality of educational media facilities at the stations. Section D was used to collect data on the programmes being transmitted on daily basis to the public in order to determine the educational ones among them, while section E was used to collect data on sponsorship of programmes in the television stations. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Findings revealed that only 36 (representing 17.4%) out of the 207 media personnel available are educational broadcasting specialists. Also findings revealed that there are available and functional media facilities to execute educational broadcast in the stations. Findings also revealed that only 35 (representing 16.5%) out of 212 weekly programmes being transmitted are educational contents. Based on these findings it was recommended among others, that, personnel who can effectively plan and execute educational broadcasting should be recruited in the stations. Also, available media facilities at television stations should not only be used for the transmission of informative and entertaining contents but also, for the dissemination of educational contents to the public
