Letters from Bohdan Zachary

June, 2018

I'd like to own up to a mistake we made.  Milwaukee PBS tried something different; we introduced a smaller size of "Fine Tuning".  The critiques began as soon as the magazine arrived in homes.  Milwaukee PBS heard you loud and clear:  you missed the larger sized format, you wanted more program information and a schedule grid that was easier to read and to highlight your favorite 'must watch' programs.

We heard you and we took your comments very seriously.  We hope you will enjoy “Fine Tuning”, version 2. Please let us know what you think.

To say it’s been busy at 1036 N. 8th Street is an understatement.  The Milwaukee PBS team successfully concluded the 50th Great TV Auction in an updated format and in a new (but temporary) location on the station’s two soundstages.  Thousands of viewers enjoyed our golden anniversary edition of the annual TV Auction.  Winning bidders discovered the MATC Walkers Square building, where we housed pick-up-and-pay for the Great TV Auction.  Milwaukee PBS staff, volunteers and numerous on-air hosts donated countless hours to make the two weekend production a success.  A big thank you also goes to everyone who donated items as well as the underwriters who helped make the event possible.  In coming months we’ll share details about the 2019 Great TV Auction, which will move into two floors in MATC’s historic Foundation Hall building on the downtown campus.  Those two floors are currently under construction and by fall we will have the Great TV Auction moved into its new home.

In the meantime, as you travel throughout our beautiful state keep your eye out for John McGivern and his team.  They’re out on the road taping the next 12 episodes of Around the Corner with John McGivern.

As always, we welcome your comments, critique, and ideas about stories we should cover. Feel free to write me at zacharyb@matc.edu or call me at (414) 297-7661.

Thank you,
