All PTV stations are, at their core, educational, and WNIT reinforced its role in regional education by expanding to its lineup of weekly Ed programs. In Nov. 2016, we launched EducationCounts_Michiana, aimed at finding the region’s best examples of learning practices. “Citizen hosts” lead viewers through 3-4 segments in each half-hour program. Content is driven by an advisory group of community leaders from school superintendents to early childhood professionals and business people.
