Meet Lewis Pagel, an Edgerton, Wisconsin native, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh alum and a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan who moved to the Arctic town of Kotzebue, Alaska 10 years ago. We couldn’t think of anyone better to tell us why we should watch the three-part Wild Alaska Live starting this Sunday night at 7 on Wisconsin Public Television to learn about the natural beauty and wonders of America’s last frontier! We’ll be watching, Lew!
Watch a trailer below for the three-part series, hosted by the Kratt brothers, that will continue Wednesday, July 26 and Sunday, July 30.
Look alive Packer fans! This week on Director’s Cut, I had the pleasure of interviewing director Michael Neelsen about his documentary Last Day at Lambeau. This is a fascinating look at the last days of Brett Favre’s career with the Green Bay Packers. Although the bridge between Favre and the Packer organization has recently been rebuilt, Last Day takes us back to when the unthinkable happened: Favre left the Packers and to make things worse, eventually donned a Minnesota Vikings uniform!
When Wisconsin Public Television interviewed former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Antonio Freeman for the upcoming Director’s Cut episode on the film “eXtreme, Loyal, Victorious: The Packers’ Fan Experience” (airing 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19), host Pete Schwaba took a few extra moments to ask him about his experience with concussions and head injuries in football and new ways to make the game safer for all athletes. In addition to his 10-year All-Pro career, Freeman is a member of the NFL’s Player Safety Advisory Panel, which works to protect and support the safety of its players.
