Now that WTVP is back in business thanks to the generosity of so many who have already fulfilled their Save Our Station pledges, we are doubly committed to doing what we do best: producing programs about and for Central Illinois.
We are in serious discussions with Illinois Central College on two new series that will be useful, interesting and entertaining to viewers in the area. If ICC is involved, then you know it will be quality. We are also searching for production funds for two other new series: one aimed at the agribusiness community in our area, and the other for those socially conscious who are interested in fun, imagination and green. More details will follow as we lock in contracts and funding.
Additionally, we are working on a new documentary on Spalding / Academy of Our Lady / Bergan, a town hall meeting about AIDS in the young Black female community, a new family concert with the Peoria Symphony Orchestra, two new programs in the New Peorians series, more new At Issue with H Wayne Wilson programs, new Illinois Adventures, new interviews in the Interesting People series with Ed Sutkowski, and more. Speaking of IP, you won't want to miss the next one when Ed visits with our own Linda Washkuhn, one of the founders of the Race for the Cure in Peoria, on Friday, May 2 at 9 p.m., prior to this year's race.
If you enjoyed and valued WTVP before, just watch us now. The best is yet to come.
President & CEO, WTVP (Retired 2014)
