Our Ohio Returns for a Seventh Season

The weekly series continues to profile the Buckeye State’s people, places and culture.

 

It’s easy to see Ohio’s rolling hills, historical towns and proud cities, but there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to the Buckeye state.

 

Our Ohio, the weekly series that gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Ohio’s places, faces and products, returns this April for a seventh season.

 

“Our Ohio is full of interesting stories and interesting people. We’ve met rough and tumble bull riders, a riverboat captain with a penchant for piracy, a couple who built their house from trash, creative restaurateurs and a lot of hardworking people trying to make a living from the land they love. When you travel off the beaten path you meet plenty of characters,” Our Ohio Producer Richard Wonderling said.

 

This season, Our Ohio viewers will see how farmers are using technology to increase productivity, why corn is interesting to researchers, the ins-and-outs of the Buckeye tree, how deer are impacting crops and much more. In fact, season seven includes 10 brand new episodes as well as replays of some of the Our Ohio favorites. The first of the new episodes will air Saturday, April 14, at 3:30pm on CET and Sunday, April 15, at 1pm on ThinkTV14.

 

“Our Ohio ventures off the beaten path. We often feature stories that would otherwise go untold. For one reason or another, rural voices are seldom heard. These people play an important role in our society and Our Ohio gives them a voice,” Wonderling said.

 

Our Ohio will be broadcast Saturdays at 3:30pm on CET and Sundays at 1pm on ThinkTV14.

 

Also, this year Our Ohio producers will be sending status updates and notes from the field. To stay in touch with the producers, follow ThinkTV and Our Ohio on Facebook and Twitter.

 

More information about Our Ohio is available at www.OurOhio.org. Funding for the series has been provided by the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, Nationwide Insurance and Medical Mutual of Ohio. The series is produced by Public Media Connect, ThinkTV and CET in southwest Ohio and is broadcast state wide on Ohio public television stations.
