West Side Stories Television

Special COVID-19 MULTIMEDIA COVERAGE - Living a Sheltered Life

In normal times, our reporters are out on the streets of Grand Rapids working on stories for our weekly news magazine show - West Side Stories. For the safety of our staff, reporters were asked to work on stories remotely. It was a big challenge, but this website bears witness to their success and is a testament to their dedication and professionalism.

West Side Stories is a broadcast news magazine program produced by students in Grand Valley State University’s Multimedia Journalism Program. The weekly show features relevant and timely stories of people and places in West Michigan. In fall and winter you can find us on PBS - WGVU, Channel 35.3 on Sunday nights at 6:30 pm.
