WTIU and WFIU are making some big changes to our various YouTube channels to create a more streamlined experience for our audience.
The biggest change is that WTIU and WFIU will combine their separate YouTube channels into one: WTIU & WFIU | Indiana Public Media. A bit of a mouthful, we know, but we plan to have all of our arts and culture video content in one place.
This channel will take the place of the former WTIU YouTube channel, so if you’re already subscribed, there’s nothing else you need to do.
This channel will also feature a number of our locally-produced documentaries including A Rural Revolution: Indiana’s Round Barns, Crooked Stick: Songs in a Strange Land, the Spirit Of series, and more.
Upcoming videos from our award-winning newsroom are now at WFIU & WTIU News, previously WTIU Newsbreak. This includes segments and episodes from Indiana Newsdesk, as well as other new projects from the news team.
Many of our existing channels will largely stay the same, including The Friday Zone, Journey Indiana, Flyover Culture, and A Moment of Science—although you may start seeing some new thumbnail images and playlists pop up.
As we migrate much of our content, some of our previously launched channels will be phased out. Videos from WFIU Public Radio, Earth Eats, Friday Zone Joke Time, and Friday Zone Stuntology will be re-uploaded to their new homes over the next few months. Once that is complete, those channels will be deleted.
Changes to these channels should go into effect over the next few months. Our hope with this project is to make it simpler for viewers to find similar types of content they enjoy, all in one place.
