Message From the President

Welcome to 2023! We’re excited to start the new year with a new take on a series you  may recognize – Across Indiana is coming back . The new episodes bring you authentic stories of Indiana’s people, places, curiosities and oddities.

The new year also means a new round of some of the best programming public media has to offer. Finding Your Roots is returning for a new season. But before it kicks off, you can enjoy a New Year’s Day marathon of fan-favorite episodes. As always, host Henry Louis Gates, Jr.  will uncover heritage and ancestry of a variety of public figures.

As you might’ve already guessed from this issue’s cover, All Creatures Great and Small’s new season will jumpstart a year full of fantastic British television. Beginning January 8, this season features wedding bells, a clash between local farmers and the government, and more challenges for the show’s cast. Miss Scarlet and The Duke also return to broadcast with a new season, with fresh cases  for Eliza’s detective agency.

You can also dive into a new series of culinary adventures this month! Lucky Chow features LUCKYRICE culinary festival founder Danielle Chang exploring America’s Asian food landscape. My Greek Table digs  into traditional and healthy Greek recipes, as well as their impact on your physical and emotional wellbeing. Finally, new episodes of Moveable Feast with Relish spotlight innovative chefs making use of seasonal and regional ingredients.

As we step into a fresh year, we’re so grateful to be doing it with your support. We look forward to bringing you trusted journalism, inspiring stories and lifelong learning to Indiana.
