Media Meet WNMU-TV PBS Original

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.

Program Funding

*Please Note: Concerning the episode titled "Vaccine Mandates: When Rights and Responsibilities Collide” with guest Karl Bohnak. At several points in the program, Karl Bohnak’s opinions about mandates broadened into opinions about vaccinations and the asymptomatic spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. His opinions conflict with recommendations of the medical community. As noted in the show, if you have questions about vaccines or COVID-19 spread, you should consult your local healthcare professional or health department and in no way do his opinions represent WNMU-TV or it’s sponsors. 

On many occasions the past year, Media Meet has engaged area health officials, community leaders and subject matter experts to bring you the latest developments on COVID-19. We intend to do so again on our next show and in the months ahead. Thank you.
