Hosted by Granite State News Collaborative Director Melanie Plenda, The State We're In explores solutions to the Covid-19 pandemic in New Hampshire and highlights local efforts to combat the virus and rebuild local economies.
The State We're In was the title of one of the first public television public affairs programs on New Hampshire PBS. Nearly fifty years ago the station was known as Channel 11- the New Hampshire Network. This series seeks to revive the in-depth reporting and civil discourse that once was the hallmark of public affairs and discussion shows in the state.
The State We're In is produced in partnership with the Granite State News Collaborative which is funded in part by the Solutions Journalism Network and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. Production assistance is provided by the students and staff of the Marlin Fitzwater Center for Communication at Franklin Pierce Unversity in Rindge, NH.
