ATHENS, OH – WOUB Public Media will premiere the first episode of its new series, Foothill Features, on Monday, May 27 at 9 p.m. The show will be repeated on Thursday, May 30 at 10 p.m.

The magazine-style variety program contains an eclectic mix of feature narratives that showcase the sights, sounds and stories of our region. The first Foothill Features episode will contain stories on:

  • The Ohio Art Corridor
  • The Zanesville Y Bridge
  • The mystery of Moonville

  • Friday Night Football Legacies

“This program has something for everyone,” said WOUB Producer/Director Chris Flanery. “And I hope people will be inspired by what they learn about our region.”

New episodes for this series will be planned for release every fall and spring. Each episode will feature five to seven stories from various locations across the region. Each story featured in the broadcast will also be individually shared on WOUB’s YouTube channel and other digital platforms.

“A key component of Foothill Features is that it will not be formulaic. The magazine-style format allows for an exploration of different storytelling styles that best suit the individual story being told. Overall, Foothill Features seeks to be an approachable, unpretentious examination of the uniqueness of this region,” said Flanery. “The primary goal of Foothill Features is to highlight the stories of the region and encourage people to take greater ownership and curiosity of their community.
