Local WQLN Television Productions

Erie Now

Erie Now, a WQLN TV Original Production, is an informative series of discussions featuring local journalists who interview local Erie Vital Signs experts about Erie County’s well-being in eight topic areas. Erie Now aims to inform the public and inspire community action in key areas of greatest importance to the vitality of our region.

Women & Cancer

This Program introduces five remarkable Pennsylvania women who live with cancer, as it looks at the latest techniques in preventing, detecting, and treating some of the most common cancers affecting women. It also examines efforts to improve the quality of life for cancer patients after treatment.


Perspective: The Lake Erie
Quadrange Marine Sanctuary

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has re-established a process allowing the public to nominate maritime and Great Lakes areas for National Marine Sanctuary status. Is the Lake Erie Quadrangle the perfect candidate?



Behind the Bard

Perhaps no English-language works are more enduring than those of William Shakespeare, whose themes continue to be relevant in our daily lives. Enjoy WQLN TV's original “Behind the Bard” shorts, in support of the PBS series Shakespeare Uncovered II. WQLN, Gannon University’s Schuster Theatre, and the Erie Playhouse team up to share unique Shakespeare insights.
