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.

Program Funding

Media Meet is made possible with major funding from The Ray & Peg Hirvonen Foundation.
