Message From the President

History awaits you this month on WFYI. Ken Burns returns with The U.S. and the Holocaust, which tells the story of how Americans grappled with one of the greatest humanitarian crises of the twentieth century, and how it tested the ideals of our democracy. Then catch a marathon of African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross, which chronicles the history of America’s relationship with slavery and civil rights. Finally, Ken Burns’ Country Music dives deep into the history of ballads, hymns and blues, as well as how the genre reached its modern mainstream popularity.

With a second season on the horizon, don’t miss your chance to watch the entire first season of Miss Scarlet & The Duke this Labor Day weekend. The series from the writer and showrunner of Grantchester follows Victorian London’s first female detective, and her fiery relationship with her investigative partner. More British drama continues on WFYI this month with new seasons of Frankie Drake Mysteries, Van der Valk and Broadchurch, with many more exciting series available to stream with your WFYI Passport membership.

Children’s television has reached a major milestone this month as Daniel Tiger celebrates its 10th anniversary. We’re committed to engaging local children with educational and inspiring shows and events, from 24 hours of kids programming each day on WFYI 2 to delightful chances for little ones to meet Daniel Tiger himself.

As always, we deeply appreciate your support of WFYI, support that allows us to bring you news, events, entertainment and more, every day.
