We're breaking new ground this summer.

On air, we have the best television on television to offer you. Already, First Peoples is riveting viewers using the latest scientific discoveries to delve into the history of humans on Earth. Our not-to-be-missed drama line-up includes new seasons, new series and a fresh new version of Poldark on Masterpiece, one of our best-remembered and most-requested programs. And our robust new partnership with the BBC is providing exciting new nature programs leading up to our first joint PBS/BBC live TV event at the end of August. Big Blue Live promises to be an amazing in-the-moment program about a once-a-year confluence of marine life in California's Monterey Bay. #BigBlueLive

Behind the scenes, we are busy shaping our collaboration with WILL. With two such talented, mission-focused teams working together, I am excited about our future together and the increased impact we can have for you. We are well placed to be a positive model to stations across the nation.

Looking ahead, great new local programming is also on the horizon. We are currently researching-and seeking viewer input for-a new program on 1950s Peoria for our Main Street Memories franchise. And stay tuned for new episodes of Illinois Adventure, a new season of At Issue with H Wayne Wilson, and a new local series hosted by Yvonne Greer.

As one fiscal year ends and a new one begins, we welcome Henry Vicary and Jerry Herbstreith to the WTVP Board of Directors. Our thanks to Karl Stach, retiring President of Pekin Friends of 47 for his service. Thank you for your continued support of WTVP and public media in Central Illinois.
