Media Award Winner to Speak at TEARS Conference

Georgian Lussier, producer for "Midlife Matters" on WPAA TV, has been selected to receive the Alliance for Community Media Rika Welsh Award. This award is given to community television producers who are successfully empowering the community they have chosen to serve.

The committee said, “We picked Georgian for the impact her program "Midlife Matters" has on her guests, their causes and the community at-large.” With a mix of wisdom and wit, she discovers stories which are shared in conversation as TV, achieving the goal of creating make-a-difference community television.
