Supporting Lakeshore Public Television and Radio is Important for Northwest Indiana

Northwest Indiana: if you and your family enjoy Lakeshore Public Television and the great programming that comes with it, you should actually support the network through membership, sponsorship, auctions, and helping them spread the word about the programming and content.

We all grew up watching Sesame Street, Mister Rogers Neighborhood, Electric Company, Schoolhouse Rock, and a ton of other great kids programming. They still have a great lineup on shows such as Sesame Street, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Curious George, Arthur, and Sid the Science Kid.
