WNET UP Next Goes “Back to School” with Sandra Sheppard

With the “back to school” season upon us, WNET Up Next sits down for a visit with Sandra Sheppard, WNET’s Director and Executive Producer, Children’s and Educational Media Department, to learn about her life at WNET and her busy production schedule which includes productions Thomas and Friends; Bob the Builder; Cyberchase; Oh, Noah!; Mission US and Films BYKids.

Speaking with podcast host Tom Stewart, Sandra shares her thoughts on the importance of media for children, and details inside information about many of her productions and how they’re made. She also talks about her extensive career here at WNET, how a great mentor made a big difference in her career path, and shares stories on the mission and impact of WNET’s educational media content.

WNET Up Next is a podcast designed to take listeners inside the world of WNET, with interviews about our series and how they’re created. The podcast also serves as a platform for producers to share personal, behind the scenes stories about their programs and careers.
