Pittston, PA – WVIA Public Media's all-new 1-hour monthly magazine style television program, "Stay Tuned" showcasing stories from throughout northeastern Pennsylvania and the Central Susquehanna Valley premieres an all-new episode Thursday, February 18, 2016 at 7 p.m. on WVIA-TV.


Discover the steps NEPA is taking against animal cruelty, through reporting and proper adoption; Explore the benefits of fresh produce and how to characterize the problem of food waste in our region with the help of the Weinberg Food Bank; Originally opened in 1928 the former East Scranton Junior High School continues to serve the community; Marywood trains teachers and provides string education to children in our area through the National String Project Consortium; and salutes local high-school football legend George Curry.


In each episode host Adriane Heine introduces stories that focus on critically important issues to our region, that not only present the problems facing our communities but also the solutions that are making positive change. "Stay Tuned" will showcase stories about individuals and organizations that are making a difference in our region in the areas of economics, workforce readiness, health and wellness, lifelong learning, quality of life, and veteran's affairs.


For almost 50 years WVIA Public Media has always been committed to public service in the region, but recently WVIA expanded that commitment in several important ways. Our first-ever audience research project confirmed that our listeners and viewers recognize WVIA's strengths for quality, educational, informative, entertaining content. We then turned to those strengths to create WVIA's "content filter" that focuses on but not limited to the topics of health/wellness, lifelong learning, quality of life, regional economy/entrepreneurs/workforce readiness, and veterans affairs.


Then, WVIA partnered with The Institute for Public Policy and Economic Development at Wilkes University to launch a new community engagement initiative, turning the station outward to identify the region's critical needs which in turn steer the creation of WVIA programming and community projects that attain measurable outcomes.


"Stay Tuned" continues WVIA's goal to build measurable positive outcomes in addressing the critical needs of our region identified by The Institute; to educate those in need; and highlight those making a difference in our communities.


Encore presentations of the premiere episode of "Stay Tuned" can be seen Friday, Feb. 19  at 7 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 21 at 5 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 1 at 5 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 15 at 5 p.m. on WVIA-TV.


WVIA Public Media is a catalyst, convener and educator, using media, partnerships, powerful ideas and programs to improve lives and advance the best attributes of an enlightened society.
