A weekly public affairs show about McKeesport and the Mon Valley, produced in cooperation with WEDO (810) and WZUM (1550).
Topic: Growing the service area of the "Mon Valley's museum"
Guests: Teresa Trich and Dave Moore of the McKeesport Regional History & Heritage Center
How Topic Discussed: The McKeesport Heritage Center has absorbed the collection of the Mifflin Township Historical Society, adding its 13 communities to its service area. What types of resources will people now be able to find for historical research about the Mon Valley? How has the museum adapted to the challenge of being forced to suddenly close its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic? What are ways that people can help? Why should anyone from outside the immediate area be interested in the stories the museum tells?
