 EXPERIENCE and engage...
Finding out how community members feel about critical issues is essential to public media.
ideastream reporters, producers and editors traveled throughout the region to uncover facts, explore community challenges and drive conversations. Through a series of visits to Northeast Ohio neighborhoods, ideastream teams revealed local concerns and shared discussions through broadcast and digital distribution channels. Dialogues in East Cleveland focused on health concerns. In Sandusky, audience members voiced concerns about the environment and Lake Erie. Lorain residents discussed what the city was doing about its low performing schools, now under state control.
Community members were invited to engage in a Q&A with the panelists at each tour stop.
This  scal year, the Reinberger Remote Truck was taken on a community tour. The tour highlighted local issues and the people who make up Northeast Ohio.
“Thank you for covering today’s issues intelligently.”
