HERE'S WHAT PROGRAM MANAGERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT SIT AND BE FIT
Comments and Testimonials...
"I never really knew just how popular SIT AND BE FIT was until the time I bumped it for a week during a recent pledge drive. I heard from a number of regular viewers who were upset that the show was not on and concerned that we might be taking it off the air. I will say that fans are looking for some new shows for the series and have been asking me when they will arrive."
Program Director, WVIA
"The foundation that owns WLAE also develops housing for the elderly. Your program helps to further our mission to serve the senior members of our community. SIT AND BE FIT provides our elderly viewers with an incentive to maintain flexibilty and movement. As you know there are many other fitness programs, but few are tailored to this rapidly increasing segment of the broadcast market."

"We never realized how much of an impact SIT AND BE FIT was having on our home bound and nursing home resident audience until we mistakenly took the show off the air. We were barraged with phone calls from viewers, viewer relatives and health care workers letting us know how much the enjoyed and depended on this program to 'get them going.' They all wanted us to bring the program back. After some difficult schedule rearraging, I'm proud to say SIT AND BE FIT is back on the air, four days a week, and being enjoyed by this very loyal audience. Glad to hear that a new program series is under consideration. Hope they will be available soon."

"I wouldn't dare replace "SITAND BE FIT." We have been airing this unique exercise program for the elderly and disabled for at least 10 years-- I think we've run it from the beginning. The heartfelt calls I get from viewers reinforece the series' importance and releivance to an audience niche."

"In my programming capacity at both WYCC-TV (1992-1995) and at KCSM-TV (1995-present), I have always regularly aired "SIT AND BE FIT." I feel that this series directly benefits more people than any other series aired on public television in the Unityed States. The daily exercise and inspiration that the audience gets cannot be gotten anywhere else. I am proud to now be the Asoociate Producer of the 600 series."

SIT AND BE FIT continues to be an important part of our schedule Monday through Friday. You know as I do, that when you move it or take it off, you hear from your viewers. It's important programming for our important viewers- we love it!"

"SIT AND BE FIT has long been a major part of our community mission. As a college station we designed an entire physical education class around this series. It's been several years since we began this program and it continues to be one of our favorite distance learning courses for physical education. KCSM is proud to have SIT AND BE FIT in our schedule and part of our viewing and learning community."

"I want you to know since I started airing your program on KUSM last month, I have received nothing but praise from our viewers. I have also received compliments from physical instruction personnel regarding the quality of your work and how important it is to have your program on the air. We are sending a thousand flyers to senior citizens organizations retirement centers and nursing homes throughout the state of Montana. We feel it is important to KUSM as well as the elderly to spread the word about your work. Thank you for your fine program and giving us quality exercises for people over 50 years of age."
