Last year, WTTW and other PBS stations started a new holiday tradition by airing the Peanuts Thanksgiving and Christmas specials, but missed out on Halloween. This year, the tradition gets even better: It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown will air on public television in addition to the other beloved classics.
There's a huge amount of worthwhile TV out there nowadays, so it can be hard to choose what to watch. But who better to recommend shows than the person who programs them? Lisa Tipton, WTTW’s Head of Programming and Pledge, constructs the WTTW schedule by searching through offerings from many different sources which include the national PBS network, the BBC, and independent filmmakers to put together a varied and engaging broadcast schedule.
