April 21, 2011

Detroit will be featured on the national PBS program Need to Know this week. The weekly public affairs series is focusing on a watershed moment in Detroit’s history–namely, the city’s current efforts to right-size. Detroit Public Television (WTVS Channel 56) has produced and edited a key segment about a Detroit public school (Paul Robeson-Malcolm X Academy) competing for the first time in the semi-finals of the National Engineers’ Week Future City Competition. The Detroit segments are hosted by local correspondent Desiree Cooper.

Need to Know is seen in Detroit Sundays at 12:30 p.m. on Channel 56, with an additional late-night airing this Friday at 11:30 p.m.
