We LOVE Ideastream Public Media

Ideastream is now Ideastream Public Media!!!  This year, they are celebrating their 20th anniversary and I’m excited to partner with them on their fabulous new rebranding!  Public broadcasting stations WVIZ, WCPN and WCLV are now known as Ideastream Public Media


I have always been a public television fanatic!  Growing up my favorite television program was Sesame Street. In fact, my parents told me that I actually started speaking Spanish because of it at a very early age.  As I got older, Great Performances was my  getaway to New York stages, watching my favorite Broadway and opera stars.  Now that I have a family of my own, we are avid Ideastreasream Public Media viewers,  not to mention NPR is a constant on our radio these days.   Just like me, my kids loved watching Sesame Street and Curious George when they were young!!  Having access to Public television makes it so easy to introduce them to different world class performances, whether we are watching The Cleveland Orchestra or Great Performances from all over the world!  We love that it’s right in our living room, with a touch of a button!   And NPR is always on our radio!  My husband especially loves Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me on Saturday Mornings!    


Nothing has changed at Ideastream Public Media, in fact, their mission remains the same:  to serve Northeast Ohio as a trusted and dynamic multimedia source for local journalism, inspiring stories, and quality entertainment.  In addition, Ideastream Public Media will convene the community and bridge divides – not only through dialogue, but through innovative solutions and investments in local journalism. They will also continue to provide the local and national programming you rely on – including from PBS and NPR.


Their transition to Ideastream Public Media is more than a name and logo change though.  It signals their evolution and symbolizes all of their stations coming together as a unified organization to strengthen the community.  But they need our support, voices and ideas to help them further their mission!
