Meet the Producers of RETRO REPORT on PBS at VIA

Posted by WVIA Admin on

VIA Public Media will host producers of the new television current events series RETRO REPORT on PBS for a screening and community conversation Tuesday, November 12 at 7:00 pm in the VIA Public Media studios in Pittston. The public is invited to make free reservations at www.wvia.org.

RETRO REPORT on PBS airs Monday and Tuesday nights in October at 9:00 pm on VIA TV. The program offers a fresh perspective on current headlines, revealing their unknown — and often surprising — connections to the past. Each episode explores four distinct stories, closing with “Now It All Makes Sense,” a special segment featuring the wit and wisdom of author and comedian Andy Borowitz.

Special guests for the Nov. 12 event at VIA include series co-executive producer Bonnie Bertram, who has produced stories on video screen addiction, artificial intelligence, vaccines, mass incarceration and more, and producer Matt Spolar, who has produced stories on athletes and social protest, violence in sports, Napster and more. 

The evening includes discussion with the guests and audience as well as light refreshments. Seating is limited, and free reservations are available while they last at www.wvia.org.
