Our Local Sponsor Spotlight: Mid-West Family Broadcasting

April 14, 2017

We’re proud to welcome back another wonderful local sponsor for our La Crosse Listen to Your Mother show. Mid-West Family Broadcasting has been amazing to work with. They are one of the biggest radio stations and are located right downtown, so you’ll often find their dj’s out and about at events. They helped spread the word about auditions, and now they’re talking about the show! You may have heard our ads which were produced by Mid-West Family and are playing on all their stations. Find the one that fits your mood! Plus, it seems we got them in the spirit of mother stories, and here is one shared by staff member Lori Wilhemson, showing mothers are found in many places. Thank you, Lori, for sharing this story with us all! *** I never knew my mother. She passed away when I was 9 months old. My dad was left with three children, all […]

Our Local Sponsor Spotlight: Women Writers Ink

April 12, 2017

We’re so pleased to introduce you to one of our local megaphone sponsors, Women Writers Ink! A nonprofit writing organization whose mission is to “reflect its light into words and enrich the world with story.” We couldn’t ask for a better partner! Everyone needs a community and, fifteen years ago, three women decided they needed support from one another as writers.  The result was a magical group called Women Writers that met, and still meets, to have a safe place in which to share writing. In 2013, the group incorporated as the nonprofit Women Writers Ink (WWink), and now they’ve formed three writing groups to bring the written word to more and more people. The key word here is “safe.” More important than anything else, WWink provides a place for people to share their writing, at any level. No one is forced to read their work aloud but, when they do, the feedback is […]

Welcome Back our Local Emcee: New 8’s Lisa Klein

April 9, 2017

We’re thrilled to have Channel 8’s Lisa Klein return to the Weber Center’s stage with us for our 2017 show! A mom herself, and supporter of area stories featuring families, education, and defying the odds, Lisa was the perfect addition to our 2016 debut. We loved having her hangout in the greenroom with the cast and she was part of our team huddle too! She had no idea we meant it when we warned her to “Keep kleenex handy.” Just like our audience, Lisa listened to all our motherhood stories for the first time on show night, and she was blown away. We can’t wait to hear what she thinks about our 2017 production! Here’s what she had to say about her experience last year: “I was truly struck by the testimonies of last year’s presenters. I heard stories of unconditional love and tremendous pain. As each storyteller bravely shared their experiences either […]

The same can be said about photography shoots — especially when it comes to family and senior photo shoots. However, over the past ten years, I have learned the value […]
