WNED thinkbright Create 2020 | Preview
WNED thinkbright Create's ushering in the new year with some exciting new changes to the schedule.
Enjoy a round-the-clock broadcast of the most popular lifestyle and how-to programming seen on public television.
In response to an extensive review of what audiences most watch, WNED thinkbright Create will add more lifestyle genres and create program threads designed to make finding viewer favorites even easier! From Fitness to Food, Weekly Showcases to Hometown Create, and popular content in dedicated timeslots, Create will have something for everyone!
Fan favorites Bob Ross and Rick Steves will receive their own regular spots in the schedule, making room for more Painting and Travel shows. WNED thinkbright Create will also expand its how-to offerings to include Fitness (yoga & stretching) programming on weekend mornings, joining the channel's healthy-cooking content. While Food and Travel weave through every day, segmented Arts & Crafts content will now air at least five times each weekday — making it easier for painting and needle arts enthusiasts to find their favorite shows. Weekend marathons, now known as Create Weekly Showcases, will feature five-hour stacks each Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Showcases repeat as double-stacked strips Sunday-Thursday featuring thematic, timely shows.
