1) How long has In the Mix been on the air?
In the Mix first went on the air in 1992 as a weekly magazine-style series for young adults.
In the past three years, the series has changed its format to single-theme programs so we can
go more in depth on important issues. Each program is funded by a private foundation or the
Corporation for Public Broadcasting. (We are always interested in funding leads!) The same
program airs the same week on PBS affiliates nationwide, but on different days and times...so
it's important to check your local listings or call the station. There are currently 34 In the
Mix programs available for re-broadcast and videotape purchase.
2) Where is In the Mix produced?
The In the Mix staff and production offices are in New York City, and most of our
production is done in the New York metropolitan area. But we have traveled all over the
country, from California to South Dakota to Washington, D.C., to shoot stories.
3) My local PBS affiliate doesn't air In the Mix. Is there anything I can do about that?
Yes! Call, write, or e-mail the Program Director at the PBS station in your area and let them
know that In the Mix is the kind of show you'd like to see in your community. You can find
station contact information on the PBS Online site at
www.pbs.org/stations. Your feedback is
very important to PBS stations and your request that they consider adding In the Mix to their
schedule can make a really big difference.
4) How can I get involved with In the Mix?
If you live in the New York metropolitan area, we offer internship opportunities several times a
year. Our student interns really keep the show and website running and learn a great deal in the
process. Course credit is offered.
