WQPT To Air Duetsche Welle Starting April 1
WQPT is happy to announce that their second channel 24.2 will begin airing DW (Duetsche Welle) beginning April 1. Duetsche Welle is a 24-hour English language TV channel, based in Germany and available almost everywhere in the world, with a mission to bring cultures together across the globe. Much like MHz Worldview, programming is from international sources.
DW replaces MHz Worldview, which had been on 24.2 for the past 10 years. As of March 1, MHz Worldview was no longer available to public television stations to broadcast as Worldview decided to continue with a new paid streaming model.
“We looked at a number of different international stations available to us, and DW seemed to provide the greatest variety of news and entertainment programming we were looking for,” said Dawn Schmitt, Co-interim General and Business Manager.
WQPT is a public media service of Western Illinois University.
