WTVP Now | John Wieland | WTVP’s new board chairman

Though WTVP long has provided unique content unrivaled in central Illinois, recent tumult put the station’s well-being at risk. But Jan. 16 brought a big turnover to the WTVP board of directors, along with $1.2 million in fresh contributions. In this special program, new board Chairman John Wieland talks with WTVP’s Mark Welp and Phil Luciano about the station’s brightened future.
