At Issue 2007-2008 Season

[Return to Current Season Page]

WTVP’s ongoing, locally produced public affairs program. Hosted by series producer H Wayne Wilson, this weekly show provides an in-depth, up-to-the-minute exploration of issues that are important to the people of Central Illinois. One week might feature a look at educational initiatives, another might focus on community issues, while still another might give viewers a chance to ask questions of our elected officials.

All AT ISSUE programs provide vital information to our viewers—from efforts to revitalize neighborhoods to joint cooperation between governmental units to riverfront development on both sides of the Illinois River. AT ISSUE is just one more way that WTVP 47 serves you through public television.
