Letter from Ellis & Kim

Thank you. It is a simple phrase at the core of our being at MPTV. We can never say it enough, and we look for every opportunity to express our appreciation for the impact you have made on the communities we reach through our broadcasts and community outreach efforts.
Your investment in MPTV brings nearly 2 million viewers programs that connect viewers together. Perhaps it is through children learning about cooperation with Big Bird on Sesame Street or high school and college students gaining perspective on the impact of the assassination of President Kennedy on the 50th anniversary of his death. High quality dramas and insightful, entertaining programs like NOVA, Antiques Roadshow and Great Performances bring us together over coffee or at the water cooler at work to discuss long after they air. Our nation's veterans are honored, especially this month, in national and local programs recognizing those who have served our nation and bring us together with the pride and gratitude we have for those who allow us to continue to live with the rights and freedoms we enjoy.
In the community, you've made opportunities for all of us to come together and share common interests and concerns. Last month's MPTV Appraisal Fair brought thousands of objects together from attendees who had treasures to learn more about. Every week, audiences gather at Turner Hall in downtown Milwaukee to be immersed in topical discussions facing our community at 4th Street Forum. The needs of children throughout southeastern Wisconsin are explored and met in multiple ways throughout the year; the most recent being thousands of mittens and other warm weather items gathered to keep little hands warm this winter through the 6th annual Mittens and More Campaign.
It is no coincidence that these efforts are connected to your loyal viewership and support. And so, we take this moment to give thanks to you. Without your loyal viewership and support, MPTV would not be the stellar public television station it is today!
