    Look whos back Yvonne Greer returns to television as the newest member of the WTVP on air team. Consider This with Yvonne Greer is a new talk show featuring the news and newsmakers of the day in a whole new way. The intent is to connect with our leaders, entertainers, and maybe even our neighbors in ways we may have never considered. Did they always want that job? How did they learn to be so self-suf-ficient? What is it about their lives that may inspire me to reconsider some aspect of my own life? Yvonne Greer will be asking those very questions as the host of this new WTVP Production. Each episode will also showcase local arts in an Artist Spotlight segment. Consider This with Yvonne Greer airs Friday nights at 7:30 beginning October 16.

The national PBS schedule has offered incredible documentaries like The Civil War and Walt Disney on American Experience, sweeping dramas like Poldark and Indian Summers on Masterpiece, and thoughtful coverage of national issues on the PBS NewsHour and America After Charleston. Our local productions have met this standard of excellence with new episodes of Illinois Adventure, new seasons of At Issue and The Screening Room, more programs from our collaboration with the Peoria Symphony Orchestra, and an exploration of trans-portation issues in Illinois with the Honorable Ray LaHood and Congresswoman Cheri Bustos.What you havent seen is the stellar work going on behind the scenes as WTVP and WILL craft an exciting new partnership.

    and take advantage of the opportunities in the digital age. We clearly have many assets to build upon, including you, our loyal audience.In the coming months you will see the fruits of these labors in more content of consequence, deeper relationships with our viewers and members, and more opportunities to connect with each other.Thank you for your continued support of WTVP and public media in Central Illinois.
