Milwaukee PBS, channels 10 and 36, is launching a new newsmagazine program. It’s appropriately named 10thirtysix and features a well-known local journalist Portia Young as its host.
The show will tackle an myriad of public affairs topic, and will initially be produced monthly. But its creators have ambitious plans for the production.
"We're going to look at issues in a broader way, in a more enterprising way," says Maryann Lazarski, executive producer of 10thirtysix.
"It's starting out monthly so we can get it right, we can develop the stories. And we will build to a more frequent production schedule in 2017, but it's going to be monthly for at least the first six months," says Bohdan Zachary, general manager of Milwaukee PBS.
10thirtysix premieres the evening of November 18 at 7:30 on Channel 10, with repeats scheduled on both Channels 10 and 36 through November 22.
