Susquehanna and follow the course of the river.

 

Tradition is woven with promise and pride making Kingston a unique community in Luzerne County and “a great place to call home.”

 

"Our Town: Kingston," is produced in partnership with the Times Leader and Lamar Advertising.

 

As northeastern Pennsylvania’s and the Central Susquehanna Valley’s member supported public television station serving a very large geographic area, the "Our Town" project was initiated in an effort to involve the communities and their residents with WVIA Public Media. The "Our Town" television series is intended to treat viewers to the many personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer.
