For Community Media Day Oct 20th WPAA-TV is honored to announce the that local Producer Georgian Lussier is being recognized for her investment in informing her viewers as recipient of the Rika Welsh Award from the NorthEast Region Alliance for Community Media

LOCAL TV HOST WINS MEDIA AWARD FOR VALUE OF CONTENT

Georgian Lussier, a Wallingford resident, will be traveling to Portland Maine Oct 22nd to accept the Alliance for Community Media Rika Welsh Award given to community television producers who are successfully empowering the community they have chosen to serve; achieving the goal of creating make-a-difference community television.

The committee said “We picked Georgian for the impact her program "MidLife Matters" has on her guests, their causes and the community at-large”. With a mix of wisdom and wit, she discovers stories which are shared in conversation as TV. Georgian’s story is representative of those she uncovers about aging well.  Like her guest she is between age 40 and 75. Her adventure in cultivating impactful stories began in midlife. She is significantly involved in the program production. Each 30 minutes segment requires an equivalent number of hours to produce from guest identification, prep, scheduling, outlining, studio work and then video editing.

The executive director at the station where MidLife Matters is produced says “I have had the privilege to meet all Georgian's guests and hear first-hand how the experience of discovering their own story was unexpectedly transforming.

Georgian has produced her show "MidLife Matters" for the past 3 and half years. It has included a variety of journey stories as well as specific content about various topics such as women's health, employment, loss, addiction, care giving, continuing education, veterans, and so much more. She has made connections with all her guests and has helped to get their messages out to the community.

Culling from her experiences she has written 5 Ways to Grow after 5O available on Amazon. She is also a workshop presenter developing a program called Advice to Your Younger Self:  Celebrate Your Story which provides insight for turning adversity into advocacy, finding your inside voice and networking.

Georgian is a Human Resource professional committed to helping women get the most out of midlife personally and professionally. Programs can be seen on WPAA-TV in Wallingford and on YouTube.
