Lakeshore Public Media to Cover NWI Primary Elections
Lakeshore Public Media will broadcast live coverage of Northwest Indiana primary election results beginning at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2 over the air on 89.1FM, online at LakeshorePublicRadio.org, and on Facebook.com/LakeshorePublicRadio.
Lakeshore’s Vice President of Radio Operations, Tom Maloney, will lead the discussion. Joining Maloney during the local coverage will be Valparaiso attorney, Jim Harper, and Senior Vice President of Northwest Region Development, Leigh Morris.
Additional reporting will be provided throughout the night by Lakeshore Public Radio’s award-winning host Michael Gallenberger, heard Monday through Friday on “All Things Considered.” Gallenberger will monitor and report the voting numbers as they are tallied and shared by county election offices and local voting precincts.
Lakeshore Public Media recently partnered with the League of Women Voters of the Calumet Area and Porter County, to coordinate and broadcast mayoral primary debates of Gary, Portage, and Lake Station. Audio recording of the three Northwest Indiana primary debates, which occurred throughout April, are available at LakeshorePublicRadio.org.
“As Northwest Indiana’s public broadcasting station, it is essential for us to provide our audience clear and integral information that helps them to be active and conscientious members of the communities we serve. By building awareness of debates, voting, and the results, we hope to encourage future participation in the democratic processes that shape our neighborhoods,” President and CEO of Lakeshore Public Media, Chuck Roberts, said.
