We’re getting ever closer to Green Bay’s debut on Antiques Roadshow! Before the first of three brand-new episodes premieres on Monday, April 23, we’ll have all sorts of exclusive tidbits and behind-the-scenes info to whet your whistle.
Today, we bring you some reflections from one of WPT’s busiest and most versatile staffers. For 10 seasons, Brandon Ribordy has taken a break to crisscross the country as a crew member for Antiques Roadshow.
As the show set up shop in Green Bay last summer (read an account of the visit here), Ribordy shared some of the backstage secrets that makes it hum.
This weekend marks the fifth anniversary of LZ Lambeau: Welcoming Home Wisconsin’s Vietnam Veterans in Green Bay.
Take a look back at the powerful event in the video below. And, join us at Wisconsin Public Television in saying “Thank You” and “Welcome Home” to all of our veterans, while we also remember all of those who gave their lives in service to our country.
Since 1980, obesity among children and adolescents has tripled.
That’s a chilling fact from the CDC that reveals exactly how tough it has become for children to maintain a healthy lifestyle in today’s culture of video games and sugary snacks and drinks. Despite its prevalence, obesity – even being slightly overweight – can be a tough subject for teens to talk about. Therefore, Teen Connection has found a group of students and community leaders who are determined to create a conversation about the childhood obesity epidemic in Wisconsin.
Tune in, and you’ll hear from UW-Green Bay students and members of the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay about how an initiative called Live54218 is helping them maintain healthy, active lifestyles. The result of a community-wide effort to think boldly about changing the childhood obesity epidemic, Live 54218 gives young people a simple formula for staying healthy. It breaks down like this:
5 fruits and vegetables per day, 4 bottles of water per day, fewer than 2 hours of screen time per day, more than 1 hour of physical activity per day, and 8 hours of sleep.
It’s really that simple. Discover more about Live54218 on the next episode of Teen Connection. And if you want to join the conversation, feel free to call or text your comments. Visit wpt.org/teenconnection for those numbers and to learn more about the show.
