Media Meet

Media Meet is WNMU’s weekly public affairs program which delves into the issues that are important to the people of the Upper Great Lakes Region. During the half-hour program community leaders and special guests of local, regional, national, and international prominence, engage with our host and media guests in intelligent discussion and candid debate regarding topics of local interest. With its unbiased, quality public affairs reporting, Media Meet has been a cornerstone of WNMU-TV’s local production schedule for more than 20 years.
