Lakeshore Public Media

Vehicle Donation Program

In the mid-1980′s, a group of concerned citizens began looking for a way to give Northwest Indiana a televised broadcast voice. When the Lake Central School District could no longer support local station WCAE, the license was assigned to Gary, Indiana and secured by the founding directors of Lakeshore Public Television. Lakeshore Public Television signed on the air November 1987 as WYIN Channel 56. Today, nearly 25 years later, we remain the sole televised source for local news, sports, and weather, as well as information on cultural events and community issues.
