Learn about WI’s public broadcasting history at MCPL Hatley Branch
Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR) and Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) have been entertaining and educating folks in the Badger State for decades. But how did these stations get off the ground and pave the way for other public broadcasting outlets, including NPR? Find out when the Marathon County Public Library hosts “The History of Wisconsin Public Broadcasting” on November 6 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hatley Branch Library, 435 Curtis Ave., Hatley.
