Bringing Illinois Stories To Viewers
Mark McDonald estimates he has done 900 episodes of "Illinois Stories". McDonald travels throughout the area to bring interesting people to the screen on public television stations WSEC/WQEC/WMEC. A veteran TV journalist, his conversational style allows viewers to learn about places and individuals who might live right down the street.
"When I am traveling, especially in small towns in central and west central Illinois, they'll tell me you know I have lived here all my life and I never knew about that," McDonald said about the show he hosts and produces.
Illinois Stories has been nominated for an Emmy Award from the Mid-American Chapter in the Interview/Discussion category.
McDonald visited WUIS to appear on our program, Illinois Edition.
