Linda Miller, Vice President of Programming for WTVP

From the Vice President of Programming...

February will be my last Guide as WTVP chief Programmer and editor of the monthly Program Guide on February 1 I will be retiring to, among other things, spend more time with grandchildren who I dont see nearly enough because they live so far away and Im always working.

It has been my privilege to serve WTVP as Programmer for the last seventeen years, and before that as station Public Information Director. It has been a challenge to create program schedules, but also a lot of fun like a multi-dimensional puzzle that is constantly in motion. The pace has picked up considerably over the years, as weve gone from one analog channel of programs from one satellite, to three distinct 24-hour digital channels, in multiple formats, from multiple satellites and fiber links, in both high definition and standard definition.

But the bottom line for me has always been about the programs and what audiences want. Choosing those programs and determining the wants and needs of viewers has been the challenge, a constant process of discovery and analysis. Audiences, even across central Illinois, have different interests and sensibilities and requirements, and my aim has been to take the pulse of local communities and work to meet their programming needs.

This is an exciting time to be involved in Public Broadcasting the future offers the potential for new ideas and alliances that will spur growth and create opportunities for content by and about you the viewer. My colleagues can make this happen, but only with your continued support and encouragement. Its the people who make this operation what it is the technology is the delivery mechanism, but its the human spirit that gives the programming life.

Thank you for your support and kind words over the years it has made all the difference in the world.

-Linda Miller
