Wicked in Concert

Join WTVP as we celebrate the music of one of the most successful productions in Broadway history: Wicked. At its heart, Wicked is a story of personal empowerment, of an unlikely friendship and what it means to be different.

In Memoriam | Elwin Basquin 1931 - 2021

Our deepest condolences to the family of Elwin L. Basquin, who passed away July 1, 2021. One of the visionary founders of WTVP and its first employee, Elwin worked tirelessly for 25 years to bring the promise of public television to Central Illinois. Starting with a big idea and a tiny budget, he was instrumental in building WTVP into the thriving institution we see today.

Programming Highlights | August 2021

No one comes close to the diversity of voices and perspectives that air every day on WTVP. August brings stories from the royal palaces of England, native nations in the Americas and nearby Rockford, plus explorations of pre-Civil War and post-9/11 America. And these highlights are just the beginning.
