A Message from the General Manager
Greetings from WVPT
Come share your Dream and join us for our last Dream Party event at Harrisonburg's First Friday celebration on May 6, in the Friendly City Food Co-op patio from 5pm to 7:30pm. This event is in partnership with the Arts Council of the Valley and the Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance.
I also wanted to let you know that The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recently announced the nominees for the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Entertainment Awards. WVPT - PBS and PBS KIDS programs received 44 Daytime Emmy® Award nominations, with a combined total of 58 nominations for Public Media. WVPT-PBS was also recognized by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences' Webby Awards. Again this year, PBS, producers and local stations earned a combined 10 nominations, with an additional 13 honorees recognized for outstanding work. Collectively, this is tremendous recognition of the work we do to provide distinctive quality content across all distribution platforms. I'd like to publicly thank all of the producers and collaborators who have helped WVPT, PBS, and Public Media in general earn this recognition. To be sure you can easily find all the wonderful programs this month on WVPT and our twenty four hour ON DEMAND web channel, WVPT dot net, click for the specials and highlights this month.Enjoy the show!
