Next Thursday, April 12 at 8:00 pm, Maine Watch with Jennifer Rooks will air an interview with Meg Weston, the new president of Maine Media Workshops + College. Maine Watch is Maine’s only televised, statewide, public affairs program. The weekly program features issues of the day, and highlights people, nonprofits or other institutions that might be of interest to Maine people.
The interview with Meg Weston will be aired on Thursday at 8:00, and then rebroadcast Friday evening, April 13 at 9:00 pm, Sunday afternoon April 15 at 5:00 pm, with an audio version on Maine Public Radio at 12:30 pm on Friday afternoon, April 13.
In the interview, Meg conveys her enthusiasm for the future growth of Maine Media, the breadth and depth of our offerings, and the fact that many Maine people have not yet heard of this gem in Rockport Maine while our programs draw people from all over their world to immerse themselves in creative exploration and growth.
The segment is expected to be about 10 minutes of the show, including an introductory clip about the workshops and a promo for the upcoming Maine Frame show on April 23 showcasing Maine Media short films. Maine Public Broadcasting System is very enthusiastic about growing the nascent partnership with Maine Media with opportunities to broadcast content in shows like Maine Frame and cross-promotional opportunities. Jennifer Rooks grew up in Camden and is knowledgeable about the Workshops, its history and its impact on the region.
