Andrea McKenna - Program Manager
When Did You Start at WEIU? June 2012
Favorite Show on WEIU-TV: Masterpiece Classic, such as Downton Abbey, Birdsong and Mr. Selfridge and Masterpiece Mystery such as Sherlock, Inspector Lewis and Wallender. The best of British television drama comes right to your TV without commercial interruption! What's not to like?
What have you learned while working at WEIU? Coming from a very different market in Texas, I've had to quickly learn about the community that WEIU serves, and I've become very fond of it. As I've gotten to know the staff at WEIU, I've learned how dedicated they are to bringing the kind of quality television that has relevance to the community, but still entertains and stimulates viewers — no easy feat in the age of 200 channels.
Why should someone become a member of WEIU? The question should be "Why wouldn't someone become a member of WEIU?" If you've ever enjoyed the wide range of programming WEIU provides; if your children or grandchildren have ever learned about letters or numbers or even social skills from the 11.5 hours of stimulating, non-violent and educational kids' programming WEIU provides each day; if you've been able to experience an opera or a Shakespearean play or a rock concert or a Broadway show that you wouldn't otherwise have had access to; if you've learned to knit or do woodworking or to cook by watching WEIU's programming, then why shouldn't you be a member of WEIU?
Is WEIU as important to you as it is to Andrea? Become a member today! Also, send us a message and let us know what WEIU means to you!
We love to hear from you!
I support WEIU because I know that at any time, day or night we can tune in and we can count on good, quality entertainment and good wholesome programming made available to us. WEIU is what I consider to be a family friendly television station because I know that if my children or grandchildren are visiting and they enter the room where I'm watching TV, I don't have to worry about anything inappropriate being on my TV screen. I know that I can trust WEIU and I love that!
