Here are the shows we produce:
The Newsish Roundup
The Newsish Roundup is exactly what it sounds like: “newsish.” Every week we produce a bunch of local videos, news stories and features about stuff going on right here in the Grande Ronde Valley. And then we shove it all into a pot like a stew and out comes the Newsish Roundup. It combines local news, sports, events with a slightly comedic and sarcastic twinge. Like when you put a drop of crimson red food coloring in otherwise boring, colorless cup of H20.
You can watch it on your phone or just listen to it while you’re making breakfast and your morning cup of Joe. It’s a quick and fun but ultimately informative way you can keep up with just a few things going on in the Grande Ronde Valley without taking too much of the precious time in your day. So if you want to know what’s up and what’s going down around town, tune in every Thursday night for your weekly Newsish Roundup only on La Grande Alive.

Coffee With Will
In Coffee With Will, Will Bowman, the senior producer here, gets to combine two of his favorite pastimes–people and coffee–into one fun and slightly in-depth cup of tea: Coffee With Will. In the show, Will talks with local politicians, farmers, artists, doctors, lawyers, and just plain folk, all with one thing in common: they live and are active right here in the Grande Ronde Valley. And Will can BS about anything: culture, upcoming events, the connection between art and religion, all with the ultimate purpose to get to know the people who live right next door, down the street, and just to the left somewhere right here in the valley.

Eastern Oregon Creative – Creation is a deep desire to every human being. And that desire, for the past millions of years, has resulted in some of the most beautiful and emotionally evocative expressions of the human condition, essentially, what we call art. And today that’s no different. Creation, especially artistic creation, is still an integral part of the human experience.
That being said, there’s a lot of creative people in the Grande Ronde Valley. And we want you to experience them both electronically and in person. La Grande Alive hosts multiple local artists online so that you can quickly and easily peruse their craft right from the comfort of your home. But why stop there? You can also connect with these artists through their featured profile so you too may just be able to connect and collaborate with them, becoming an integral part of the creative process so dear to us here at LaGrandeAlive.tv. So if you’re into art, don’t be an uncultured old fart, check out EO Creative on LaGrandeAlive.tv for all your local creative content.
