I’m really looking forward to taking in the new WGBY nightly news program, Connecting Points.  Its very first program airs tonight at 7:30 pm est.  Cori Urban of The Springfield Republican wrote about it in today’s paper; check out the Masslive article here.  I think there’s so many interesting things happening around the Valley that need a voice and I’m really psyched that the local PBS affiliate, WGBY, is going to start bringing those to light.  No offense, of course, to the commercial stations NBC/Channel 22 or ABC/ Channel 40 (I’m still going to turn to my friend Brian Lapis for the weather), but I’m supplement my knowledge of stabbings and fires with information uncovering all the cool things that are going on around the Valley.

In the spirit of full-disclosure, I should tell you that I’m going to be producing some content for this show.  More details very soon.  Needless to say, you’ll probably be seeing a bit more blogging from me so STAY TUNED.

What I didn’t realize until recently was that WGBY is a subsidiary of WGBH in Boston… and that WGBH produces A THIRD of PBS’ national content! The produce such well-known brands as FRONTLINE, American Experience, Antiques Roadshow, Masterpiece and Nova… right here in the great old state of Massachusetts. Thank goodness for This Old House and Victory Garden, for I wouldn’t have nearly as much inspiration for those home-improvement and garden-expansion projects. For a complete list of WGBH programming, check out their website.

…and, of course, be sure to watch the first episode of Connecting Points tonight at 7:30pm est.

  1. I really enjoyed the interview with the senator from Vermont this week about the fiscal budget. Is there anyway to get a copy of it, can’t find it on the WGBH website.

    thanks Krys
