"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."

When Did You Start at WEIU? Summer 2007
What Does WEIU Mean to You? WEIU means a safe, family-friendly entertainment and learning source.
Favorite Show on WEIU: I have a 2-year-old, so we're really getting into Super Why and Word World. My personal favorite is a lot of our local programming because it really connects me to our community. On the national side, I'm starting to get into Downton Abbey!
What have you learned while working at WEIU?: What haven't I learned!? WEIU has taught me about valuing my community. WEIU has taken me places I never thought I would go (like an underground river for Heartland Highways). I have learned that not only is WEIU great, quality programming, but the people behind it really believe in the mission too.
Why should someone become a member of WEIU? Everyone should become a member of WEIU. I'm a member. If you value educational programming, information straight from your own backyard, and family-friendly TV, then WEIU is for you. You should know, too, that everyone behind the scenes here at the station really believes in what we do too. For us, it's personal. We're a family and we're always looking to expand, so come be a part of our story!
