By Joy Loving, Station Products & Innovation  

Welcome to the Weekly PBS Interactive Station Products & Innovation Debrief, which is designed to give PBS stations a rundown of product updates and opportunities announced this week on our blog.

This week we talked to WTIU’s Scott Witzke about the creation of the Weather Zone and how this can be used on your station site to reach your community. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more interviews with PBS KIDS GO! Grant winners.
