News & Notes

In October we entered our 39th season with a program called “Salmon Reckoning,” a deep dive into the complicated and controversial issue of keeping Idaho’s salmon from going extinct. Congressman Mike Simpson is proposing breaching the four lower Snake River dams, all located in the state of Washington. You can watch the half-hour program here

In December we explore “Spud Country,” our hour-long examination into the culture, the trials and tribulations, the joys and rewards of growing what are arguably the best potatoes in the country. The show airs December 5th at 7 pm. 

Another hour-long program we’re calling “Times Are a-Changin” airs in March of 2022. It’s a broad look at agencies and individuals who are adjusting to the changing times. Other shows currently in the pipeline include a look at adaptive sports called “Breaking Boundaries”; one on “Roadside Attractions,” and one on “The Bitterroots.”

Thanks for watching. We’ll keep you up-to-date on our Facebook page, where we also feature a monthly “Iconic Idaho” photo contest. New winners and Honorable Mentions posted the first of each month. Well worth checking out! And don’t forget our YouTube channel and our Instagram page!
