Mondays at 7pm on WVIA TV
For more than 50 years, WVIA has served the people of Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania by identifying and addressing the region's most pressing needs through constructive journalism. WVIA connects viewers and listeners with resources to affect change in their neighborhoods.
With this idea in mind, WVIA created Keystone Edition, a multi-platform public affairs series. Keystone Edition facilitates a conversation among viewers, change agents, and visionaries who impact their communities while providing an accurate portrayal of socially relevant topics from multiple perspectives.
This weekly, half-hour, program goes beyond the headlines to offer thoughtful insights through a fresh journalistic perspective with the thorough attention to detail and authenticity viewers expect from public television.
In its first season, Keystone Edition partnered with over 80 community partners and utilized research from The Institute for Public Policy & Economic Development and ideas from a volunteer editorial advisory panel, including veteran journalists throughout the region to explore important topics such as the ongoing pandemic and its effects of our region, evictions, voting, the PA university integration, mental health, food insecurity, genomics, the veteran's experience, working from home and so much more, all to improve the quality of life in our region.
Each week, our hosts inspire audiences to engage in conversations that highlight critical stories in our region. WVIA's Larry Vojtko and Erika Funke, as well as Kris Jones (Entrepreneur/Author) and Tonyehn Verkitus (Executive Director of the Lackawanna and Luzerne County Medical Societies), serve as moderators.
In season 2 of Keystone Edition WVIA will explore topics such as school nurses, prescription drug cost, native american arts and culture, filmmaking in NEPA, business strategies, cybercrime, green energy, sharing municipal departments and so much more.
