A Message from the President and CEO of WVIA Public Media

tomthumb.jpg

As 2017 draws to a close, we here at WVIA would like to reflect on the year that has been and give a heartfelt Thank You to our members. 

Because of your support, we were able to bring our successful education programs like PBS Kids in the Classroom to more schools than ever; including Head Start programs, helping serve the needs of underprivileged children.

We raised awareness to the medical issues that are affecting our area on Call the Doctor, and held forums to discuss our nation's concerns with our Going There and Mara Liasson events.

We told the stories or our area's Vietnam veterans in the highly popular War Stories: Vietnam.

In addition to bringing you, your favorite PBS shows like Antiques Roadshow, Masterpiece and NOVA, we told the stories of our area with the Our Town series and the original documentary film Peoples of the Susquehanna.

WVIA continues to be your home for arts and entertainment with programs like Homegrown Music Concerts, This is My Song, and Christmas at Susquehanna.

We brought families together with our annual member family days to make memories that will last a lifetime.

We do all this to help enrich the lives of the people in Northeast Pennsylvania and the Central Susquehanna Valley and we are able to do it all because of your support. As we move forward into an exciting new year we want to say Thank You for making all we do possible.

Sincerely, 

Tom Curra signature
