The PBS affiliate in the Lehigh Valley is PBS Channel 39 WLVT which reaches 6.5 million potential viewers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Four years ago Policy Studies formed a partnership with PBS39 to produce complete coverage of the 2012 US national elections. The partnership expanded with Lafayette Lens, a half-hour series covering issues of global importance.
The Lafayette Lens public affairs series is produced by Lafayette students in collaboration with Lafayette faculty, PBS39 Executive Producer Laura McHugh, and other broadcasting professionals at PBS39. The mission of Lafayette Lens is to address complex and important issues the lie at the intersection of business, technology, and public policy. It explores these issues from the perspective of the next generation of global leaders.
