A Message from the President and CEO of WVIA Public Media

tomthumb.jpg

As 2018 draws to a close we here at WVIA would like to reflect on the year it 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 into headstart 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 shined a light on our state's opioid epidemic with our Battling Opioids series.


We explored what it is to be an American citizen with American Creed and embraced our most loved books with The Great American Read.


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 even won three Mid Atlantic Emmy Awards.


WVIA continues to be your home for arts and entertainment with programs like Homegrown Music Concerts, Simply Grand Concerts and ArtScene.


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. 


On behalf of the staff here at WVIA, I would like to wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season. As we move forward into an exciting new year we want to say Thank You for making everything we do possible.

Sincerely,

TC_sign_6_13_13_for_web.jpg
