My story is simple.
15+ years ago I started watching the Newshour and became riveted by the manner in which important news and events was covered, reported and delivered. The Newshour became a springboard for me to seek out and watch other Thirteen programs. I value the breadth and depth of Thirteen so much that I truly believe my quality of life has been immeasurably improved by being a member and viewer. Sometimes I feel Thirteen has been the most economical resource for me to earn a “postgraduate degree” in countless fields of studies because it offers programs that intrigue and enrich my life and the lives of others.
My only regret is that I hadn’t been a viewer and member earlier in my life.
Thank you for creating a platform for thoughful, intelligent and civil discourse and for all the creative programs that expand our minds.

Please only use first name and last initial when airing. Susan P Thank you.
