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.

Media Meet airs on both WNMU-TV and Public Radio 90.

November 4: U.P. Business Reaching New Heights 

It's been four years since a trio of NMU graduates returned to Marquette to start a business that is unique to the region, if not the country. The business is Kall Morris Inc, and their objective is to create the hardware and software needed to clean up thousands of manmade objects circling in Earth's orbit. (#2330)

November 18: Legislative Update with Rep. Greg Markkanen  

Mike Settles sits down with Greg Markkanen. The Hancock resident is now midway through his third term as the 110th district representative in the Michigan House. You may have heard the house rushed to approve a flurry of bills before adjourning early for the year, and Markkanen is none too happy about it. Tune in to find out why. (#2331)
