Lakeshore PBS, Merrillville's Public Broadcasting Service affiliate, invites Region residents to share their holiday traditions for an upcoming show.

Northwest Indiana residents can send in a two- to three-minute video about how they celebrate holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa for the upcoming "Traditions: Spirit of the Holidays" show that will be aired multiple times during the holiday season.

"People of all ages are making videos now,” said Loren Ellis, TV operations manager for Lakeshore PBS. “We are asking them to share these videos with us, whether it is a decking your house out in lights, recreating family recipes or volunteering in your community. We want to see what your family, friends or coworkers do to celebrate the season every year. This is the season to spread good will. It’s also a great way to bring our viewers even closer into the Lakeshore PBS fold.”

Lakeshore PBS, which has won the Indiana Broadcasters Association‘s Cardinal Award for Community Engagement two years in a row, has been trying to engage the community more on-air, and to broadcast viewer stories.

Lakeshore Public Media President and CEO James Muhammad said the station's mission was to “share stories from the Region while recognizing the diversity of our audience."

“We are asking viewers to share their family traditions and see what they do to celebrate the holidays,” Muhammad said.
