WKSU EXAMINES REGIONALISM IN AN EIGHT-PART SERIES
"BEYOND THE LIMITS: THE REGIONAL VIEW" INVITES LISTENER PARTICIPATION
Wednesday February 15, 2006
The most populous area of the state, Northeast Ohio brings together a large number of diverse communities under one geographical umbrella. Metropolitan cities like Cleveland and Akron share borders and resources with growing suburbs, which in turn expand into farmland and rolling hills, changing the environmental, sociologic and economic landscape.
Beginning on Monday, Feb. 20, members of the award-winning WKSU newsroom present "Beyond the Limits: The Regional View," an eight-part series focused on issues of communication and cooperation between cities and towns in Northeast Ohio. Segments from Dave Pignanelli, Julie Grant and Kevin Niedermier will air on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during WKSU's broadcasts of National Public Radio's (NPR) "Morning Edition" and "All Things Considered."
Throughout the series, listeners will be invited to comment and contribute their opinions on segment topics by sending e-mail messages to email@example.com. On Friday, March 10 at 10 p.m., PBS 45 & 49 will broadcast a response to these listener submissions. The panel discussion with area experts will be hosted by Pignanelli. As stories air, additional information will be available online at www.wksu.org.
Topics covered in "Beyond the Limits" include defining regionalism, government, interacting with the Cuyahoga River, transportation, business, education, suburb co-operation, and emergency preparedness. WKSU airs "Morning Edition" weekdays from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and "All Things Considered" from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
"Beyond the Limits: The Regional View" is presented with support from the GAR Foundation.
