Your favorite PBS/KCPT programs and why?
My favorite programs are Rare Visions and Roadside Revelations, Sid the Science Kid and Check, Please! KC.
I enjoy Rare Visions because Randy and Mike always seem to find some very neat places to go as they travel about our country. They make exploring and discovering various places, people and things really interesting and exciting. It makes me curious to see what unique things they will find on their next adventure.
Sid the Science Kid is one of my favorites because it resonates with the young people in my family and those of my friends. It’s always fun to see them get captivated by the show and discuss the lessons they learn from doing so.
Check, Please! KC is my favorite, as I like to eat good food. It’s nice to hear and learn about restaurants I may not know about and want to try. Plus, it is produced locally and features Kansas City restaurants and Kansas City people.
What do you enjoy most about being involved with KCPT?
I enjoy being involved with KCPT because of its commitment to our community. Whether it is through educational programming for students in schools or providing books for children who may not be able to get them otherwise, it resonates with me. Our children need all of the support we can provide in order to be successful. KCPT provides necessary pieces of the puzzle to make that happen.
Quality programming is so critical today with all of what I would define as “junk or reality TV” that floods the airways. It provides not just the shows that come from PBS, but also local shows that reflect life in Kansas City – life across our community. It is somewhere to go when one wants to get away from the noise that permeates the regular airways at times… great shows, great concerts, great debates.
Why should people support KCPT?
KCPT is about touching and reaching people in ways that matter. KCPT does it like no other local entity can. Without KCPT where would we as a community be? That’s why people should support KCPT.
