"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!"

"Being an avid dog lover, I’ve learned much from the veterinarian guests you’ve had on The Paw Report as well as about several animal rescue organizations I didn’t previously know existed. I hope WEIU will continue airing this program. Another of my favorites is Heartland Highways! I’m always wanting to see more interesting facts and video about the communities you visit. Thank you WEIU-TV."
