When Did You Start at WEIU? September 2004 (part-time); October 2006 (full-time)
What Does WEIU Mean to You? WEIU is unique because it offers a variety of things that are different from other stations. We have great local programming that features people in our community. I think community involvement is very important. Our commitment to the local programming is vital to our continued success.
Favorite Show on WEIU-TV: EIU Panther sports broadcasts. Is it wrong to say that since I am on the EIU women's basketball broadcasts? I also enjoy News Watch.
What have you learned while working at WEIU? That we have some of the greatest and hardest working students around. Their dedication to the station astounds me every day I come to work. They are very passionate about what they do and it shows in their work.
Why should someone become a member of WEIU? It is very important to support your local station. With state and federal funding being cut, it becomes more difficult to provide programming. With the help of our members, we can continue to grow and give them great, family-friendly choices.

Most of TV is pathetic. I think your offering is outstanding and a lovely way spend an evening. Please, oh please, keep it up.
