Call For Action takes on viewers' issues

We added The Viewers Agenda to our editorial agenda for the year when we realized we needed a vehicle for responding to the many great editorial ideas viewers were sending us.

Our viewers find important issues in your lives as citizens that we sometimes miss up here on Raymond Road.

The folks on the news side of this operation gave us a little help.

News 3 recently kicked off the News 3 Investigates Call for Action team, an investigative team of trained volunteers in the WISC newsroom taking calls from consumers and helping them out where they can.

Some of these calls will lead to stories that WISC reporters will follow and you’ll be seeing those stories on air. But it also speaks to our editorial agenda, giving our viewers a platform for helping us identify issues of concern in your lives and helping all of us connect to our communities and each other.

If you have a question or concern, and if you want to be heard, give us a call or visit the News 3 Investigates page
