The Weekly Special is a cultural affairs program that explores the people, places, and events that make Indiana such a unique place to live and work.
From visiting unique travel destinations to profiling the rich artistic communities in Indiana, The Weekly Special aims to connect Hoosiers to the stories that often go unnoticed.
Darryl Neher is joined by co-host Erica Sagon.
The origins The Weekly Special can be found in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks. WTIU News and The Friday Zone produced a special about Indiana’s reaction to the events and profiling the community outreach seen across the Hoosier state. After the special, WTIU producers and management realized that there was no local program for which to present such stories.
The new series was launched in May 2005, hosted by Chuck Carney and Ann Shea. The original concept was to present the types of stories Hoosiers would discuss at their local diner. Despite the change of scenery with the September 2012 re-launch, the Weekly Special’s mission remains the same: to share compelling stories from across the state.
The series can be seen statewide on Indiana’s PBS stations. Please check local listings for the station and broadcast dates in your area.
