NEW EPISODES START MARCH 22!
Jim Thoreen serves as the new host of Pioneer’s talk show, which discusses important issues facing the small towns and farming communities of the Upper Midwest. Previously, Thoreen served more than 39 years as a local county and government administrator. He also brings a background of radio news production and experience as a periodic host of Pioneer’s Your Legislators and Prairie Yard & Garden to the position.
In coming weeks, Compass will cover issues facing our religious and faith communities, local road transportation needs, changing times in city and county government and how Minnesota’s court system addresses rural needs to provide equal justice in our diverse state.
Viewers with story ideas and issues they would like to see discussed on Compass are encouraged to contact Pioneer Public Television via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the station at 1-800-726-3178.
