New Humane Indiana Videos Produced by Lakeshore PBS Show Connection Between Animals and People

Merrillville, In:  Primarily known for local productions like “Eye on the Arts”, “Prep Football Report” and many other programs over its 30 plus year history, Lakeshore PBS has just wrapped up production of a brand new series of videos for Humane Indiana.  The videos will be showcasing some of the little known services of Humane Indiana, and the Humane Indiana Owl Public Art project.  Humane Indiana will feature the videos at, on the page as well as through local NW Indiana chambers and Humane Indiana’s 16th Annual Gala, taking place on March 23, 2019.


President and CEO of Humane Indiana, Harry Vande Velde remarked “Humane Indiana knows that we have multiple forms of communication to celebrate our good works.  We rely on Lakeshore PBS to be a collaborative partner in the sharing of our story visually.”  Harry went on to say “They (Lakeshore PBS) are the ultimate in professionalism and quality of product.  The region is blessed to have these two great organizations delivering critical missions for all the citizens in Northwest Indiana.”


The project was produced by Lakeshore PBS Production Manager, Tony Santucci who said, “Working with Humane Indiana was an exciting prospect. I knew I’d get a chance to be up-close with owls and hawks and who-knows-what, an opportunity most people don’t have. But the more I worked with the organization, the more it became apparent that the staff felt the same way. They were as excited to share what they do as I was to listen. It’s easy to tell stories when the people involved are passionate about what they do.”

Lakeshore PBS signed on the air November 1987 as WYIN Channel 56, a community-licensed public television station. The nonprofit organization continued to upgrade the quality of station production and broadcast equipment over the years, and added a sub-channel that airs NHK World on 56.2, offering an English-language global network presented from an Asian perspective. The station, which operates out of its studios in Merrillville, Ind., seeks to be the recognized media resource for citizens of all ages to experience lifelong learning, celebrate human diversity, and engage in civic concerns – all to enrich the lives in communities we serve.
