WPBS Presents:Public Eye

WPBS-DT and WWNY 7NEWS and WNYF FOX 28, Watertown, N.Y. have joined forces to produce, "Public Eye with Jeff Cole," a local 30-minute program that will focus on North Country issues in a roundtable format. "Public Eye" will highlight local concerns with local guests.

Jeff Cole will host Public Eye. Jeff is the morning and noon anchor on the Watertown CBS and FOX affiliates. His news programs regularly feature live interviews. "Sometimes I end an interview and I wish we had more time. Public Eye will provide a half-hour format that allows us to learn more, explain more and provide more information to the public."

"We couldn't be happier about this opportunity to team up with WWNY and Jeff Cole. This is the type of public affairs programming that WPBS strives to bring to our viewers," stated Tom Hanley, President and General Manager of WPBS-DT.

"Public TV offers more flexibility for long form news programs that broadcast stations don't have. This is a happy marriage that offers the community more local news," says Cathy Pircsuk, Vice President and General Manager of WWNY and WNYF.
