PBS39 Local Hour Premieres Tues., May 3 at 7 p.m.
PBS39 prides itself on stimulating and disseminating the exchange of ideas for community enrichment. Beginning in May, PBS39 will further this important part of its mission by introducing its all-new Local Hour, Tuesdays at 7 p.m. beginning May 3.
PBS39 Local Hour will showcase more of the people, places, and issues that matter to our community. Anchored by PBS39's Emmy-nominated weekly news magazine program, FOCUS, the Local Hour will feature homegrown programs, including PBS39's four upcoming documentaries: Wyomissing: An American Dream; The Salvation Army Legacy; Second to None: The Liberty High School Grenadier Band; and Close to Home, an original production about cancer survivorship.
"Our viewers appreciate content that engages them with their community," said Teri Haddad, EdD, PBS39 VP of Education & Production. "PBS39 Local Hour will bring them more of the stories that touch their lives, every Tuesday night."
Other programs scheduled for rotation during the Local Hour include original PBS39 productions, such as Scholastic Scrimmage, Lafayette Lens, Behind the Guitar, and Steel Sessions; as well as broader topical programming, including Our Town, Greenlife Pennsylvania, and Keystone Crossroads.
