Emmy® Award-Winning Weekly Arts and Culture Show Premieres September 2 with New Host

Contact: Meredith Hart, Marketing & Communications Director

Broad & High is the ultimate intersection of arts and culture in Columbus. This Emmy® award-winning weekly magazine show, created by the production team of WOSU Public Media, returns for a third season on Wednesday, September 2 at 7:30 p.m. on WOSU TV.

This half-hour program will continue to highlight the character and creativity of Columbus, and beyond. Viewers can expect to see regular features of Broad & High like the calendar of local events, gallery openings and festivals, and profiles of artists and their inspirations. But with a new host comes a new energy, a look at stories beyond the 270-beltway, and an infusion of local music in every episode.

Kate Manecke, a Central Ohio native, joins Broad & High as the new show host. Kate returned to Columbus after spending six years working in television production and public relations in New York City, starting out as an NBC Page and then working for Martha Stewart, Dr. Oz, and the Cooking Channel. She has a bachelor’s degree in Communications from DePauw University in Indiana. In addition to her hosting duties with Broad & High, Kate serves as the Special Events Marketing Manager with WOSU Public Media. Her passion for the arts and WOSU’s mission is rivaled “only by her love of Columbus and the sense of community the city provides.”
