We are excited to welcome Elizabeth Peterson as our new Producer and Host for WNMU-TV, Public TV 13. Peterson has worked for Northern Michigan University for the past six years as the sales manager for the Northern Center. However, her background is in broadcasting. You may remember her from the TV6 News where she co-anchored with Steve Asplund and Greg Trick as well as anchored the FOX UP News.
“I’m excited to get back to working in broadcasting. Specifically, I’m looking forward to writing and creating shows and stories that will make a difference in the community,” says Peterson. She loves working for NMU and working with students, “there’s an amazing energy on campus – I’m so grateful to be here.”
Bob Thomson, Broadcast and Production Manager, is thrilled to have Peterson join the staff of WNMU-TV, especially producing and hosting the long-running Media Meet program. “Media Meet is such an important program to our viewers. It goes in depth on important issues affecting the U.P. and with Elizabeth’s journalistic background I know Media Meet will continue to inform and enlighten WNMU-TV viewers.”
You can watch Elizabeth Peterson host her first Media Meet on November 9th at 6:30pm. She’ll be talking to NMU leadership about changes in demographics, the physical campus layout, state funding and new methods of learning beyond the standard textbook.
Media Meet airs on WNMU TV 13 every Saturday at 6:30 pm ET, Sunday at 2:30 pm ET and on Public Radio 90 Sunday at 7:30 am ET and Monday at 3:30 pm ET.
