"I would just like to thank WTVP for coming into our classrooms and helping to teach parents about educational programming for our young children." - Mary, Peoria "I can’t imagine live without WTVP. You provide valuable programming to central Illinois. Thank you." - Brenda, Peoria "Your HDTV quality is outstanding – I can’t believe how superior it is to other HD stations! I feel it was well worth the additional money you put into it and hopefully the rest of this community will feel as strongly as I do!!" - Mary Beth, Peoria "I now live in Minneapolis, but grew up watching WTVP from my parents’ home in Brimfield. WTVP is a great station and an important resource for the community." - Erika, Minneapolis "At a time when so many are working so hard to improve the education of our children, improve the quality of life in central Illinois and encourage a knowledgeable electorate the loss of public television would be a terrible loss." - Brian, Peoria "I value having a station for my children to watch where I don’t have to worry about the commercial content – or worry about the kids’ programming!" - Kiersten, Bloomington "I don’t know what my three-year-old would do without PBS Kids, and I love Ken Burns documentaries." - Aaryn, Peoria "Channel 47 is our main source of TV watching and would be truly missed…from it’s programming we are entertained, educated, and kept informed…wishing you the best for the sake of the station and all those it serves." - Leo, Washington "We truly enjoy your programming and look forward to many more years of the same excellent entertainment." - Bert & Donna, Toulon "We very much appreciate your quality programming. It enriches our lives and would be very much missed if the lights go out." - Janice & Robert, Normal "I can’t imagine not having public television in this community. It is a very important part of our lives.
- Duane, Princeton "I loved to watch Washington Week, Frontline, and Illinois Adventure. Thank you for all the great programming throughout the years. All of our family watches and enjoys WTVP." - Tim, Peoria "I grew up on WTVP, and I want the high quality programming around for my daughter to grow up on it too." - Rebekah, Peoria "WTVP is like oxygen. You won’t miss it until you don’t have it." - Kevin & Kim, Bartonville "If I could, I would give more. I appreciate WTVP and its’ valuable contribution to the enrichment of its viewers. Thanks!" - Carol, Galesburg "I am a full time student, I appreciate the station and the programming greatly, this pledge is not easy to afford, but it is easy to make." - Dennis, St. David "I have enjoyed watching several of your programs for years and I decided that it was about time I gave you some support!" - Cathy, Macomb "WTVP offers programs that are not available anyplace else. I especially enjoy the current affairs programs where participants actually discuss a topic without shouting at one another. The music, the history and the entertainment programs are without peer." - Joyce, Bloomington "Thank you for great programming for our kids. We also enjoy dramas and news. WTVP is an important community asset." - John & Elise, Washington "Thank you for giving us something WORTH watching." - Elizabeth, Bloomington "I look to WTVP to keep me up to date on the world as well as in supporting my hobbies." - Cindy, East Peoria "WTVP offers programming unlike no other station. I watched all of the classics while growing up, like Miser Rogers, Sesame Street, etc. When I grew older I came to love the musical productions like “Live at Lincoln Center and the various specials that featured many of the greatest musicians of our time. Today, I am a performing musician working in the central Illinois area. WTVP is an immeasurable influence on my success. The ideas I was regularly exposed to early on inspired the artistic endeavors I know pursue. Thank you, WTVP for your great effort in providing truly meaningful television to this area." - Anne, East Peoria "Thank you for all the years of providing quality children’s and educational programming to central Illinois. WTVP is an asset to our community." - Steve, Peoria "I enjoy so many of the programs on WTVP that aren’t available anywhere else, such as Antiques RoadShow, Nature, Illinois Adventure, At Issue, Tavis Smiley, Great Performances, American Masters and Ask This Old House. Thank you WTVP, for lighting up my world!" - Vicki, Secor "Although I live in Chicago now, I watched many many hours of great programs on WTVP when I was growing up. Thanks!!" - Stephen, Chicago "I have been watching WTVP since the age of three and this is the first time that I have pledged my support. It is very overdue and I only hope that it is enough to help save the station." - Kate, Peoria "Our family has grown up with WTVP and now our grandchildren are growing up with it. Thanks and Good Luck!" - Patty, Wyoming "Our family gets great enjoyment from your station’s programming. Since we do not have cable or satellite, your channel is on a good 80% of our TV viewing area time."
- The Logan Family, San Jose
