A Message from the President and CEO of WVIA Public Media

Tom Currá

tomthumb.jpg For almost 50 years, with the help of our members, WVIA Public Media has been northeastern Pennsylvania’s and the Central Susquehanna Valley’s source for entertaining, educational content for adults and children.

WVIA is focused to ensure award winning PBS, NPR and WVIA content is available when and where you choose, be it over the air, online, or on the go.  Now through the new wvia.org, whether you’re a person looking for information about WVIA membership; a music fan wanting to enjoy the best of classical music or Jazz; a teacher seeking classroom curriculum or arts related student programs; or a fan wanting to watch the latest episode of their favorite TV program, you will have immediate access to the content, which in turn will give you more time to enjoy it.  

Speaking of content, our talented award winning team is currently working on many new and returning projects that tell and prompt  the positive aspects of our region. Some of the projects to premiere in 2014 include: the WVIA Original Documentary Films, “Little League®: A History” and “Innovation and Enterprise, the Story of Gentex Corporation,” a new season of our environmentally focused television series, “Greenlife Pennsylvania,” over 15 episodes of WVIA-FM’s “High School Musical Preview Show,” a full season of brand new “Homegrown Music Concerts” on WVIA-TV, the “2014 Armed Forces Day Parade” from downtown Scranton, “The 2014 Scholastic Achievement Awards,” additions to our Our Town documentary series, a plethora of interviews for ArtScene on WVIA-FM, and a brand new nostalgic television series titled “Back in the Day.”

With the sustained support of new and returning members, we strive to keep growing to meet your evolving needs and interests.

We love telling your stories to regional, national, and through wvia.org, world-wide audiences and with continued member support we will do just that for the next 50 years.

Thank you,
