WGBY’s Connecting Point is a half-hour nightly magazine-style program that focuses on timely topics of interest to viewers in western New England. Interviews, analysis, field reports, and other segments will cover topics in science, health and fitness, the arts, social issues, and the environment, among others.
During our third season, Connecting Point will preview the political elections both nationally and on the local level. We also examine educational issues and address the drop out rate within the local school systems. Plus, we’ll get out into the community and introduce viewers to people places and things that make western New England such a unique place to live and work.
Friday night’s program will focus on public affairs under the auspices of The State We’re In. “The State We’re In has been looking at Massachusetts and national politics and current events for more than 30 years and we will continue that tradition within the Friday night edition of Connecting Point,” said the public affairs program’s longtime host Jim Madigan. “Viewers will still see state and local leaders and political candidates and commentators discussing all the hot issues.”
