Celebrity anchors & snappy soundbites

Allow me to introduce myself. Matt Rains is the name and as of today I’m a professional blogger. I landed this sweet internship with Maryland Public Television and the next thing I know, I’m blogging! So here I am, hiding out in my cubicle at MPT headquarters totally amped to tell you about all the cool programming I never even knew MPT had to offer before I started working here.

I’ve always been an environmentalist at heart, and I’ve really taken a liking to Nature. If you’re a fan of the outdoors, this is the show for you. Whether you’re fascinated by sharks or have always wanted to visit Yellowstone National Park, Nature will go there. I can’t believe it’s been on for 25 years, and I’m only getting into it now.

Frontline’s a new favorite of mine, too. The news documentary show looks behind the headlines to see what’s really going on behind the scenes of America’s war on terror, and discovers the darkest secrets behind some of the world’s most powerful credit card companies. I’ve even seen an episode on America’s growing meth epidemic—something I didn’t know anything about. It’s nice to know there’s more out there than celebrity anchors and snappy sound bites.
