WGZS - Fond du Lac's January Powwow
The theme of this year’s powwow is taking care of our environment. WGZS will conduct interviews with Tribal, state and other government agencies about how to take care of the world we live in and why that is so important. WGZS will broadcast live from the powwow and record and edit the live coverage down to a one-hour show that will air on WGZS and will be archived online.
$1,600,000 each year is appropriated for a grant to the Association of Minnesota Public Educational Radio Stations for production and acquisition grants in accordance with Minnesota Statutes, section 129D.19.
