About the Program

Currently in its 28th season, At Issue is WTVP-Public Media's flagship public affairs series. Hosted by media veteran H Wayne Wilson, this weekly show provides an in-depth, up-to-the-minute exploration of issues that are important to people throughout Central Illinois. The series can be seen weekly on WTVP and WTVP World Channel, as well as on commercial station WAOE My59.

All AT ISSUE programs provide vital information to our viewers and introduce them to public officials, community leaders, issue experts and citizens in the know. Discussions range from efforts to revitalize neighborhoods to joint cooperation between governmental units, from riverfront development on both sides of the Illinois River to issues affecting McLean County and other Central Illinois communities. One week might feature a look at educational initiatives, another might focus on community issues, while still another might give viewers a chance to ask questions of our elected officials.

AT ISSUE is just one more way that WTVP serves you through public television.
