Getting to Know Us.....
Q&A with Kari and Nicholle originated from a desire to bring information and answer questions on all things related to the Chapin Labor Day Festival Weekend. From three successful broadcast in 2018 during festival time, the show has now grown into 12-15 episodes year round to now include all events in the Chapin community.
Durning the Spring of 2020, in response to the 'safe at home' COVID-19 pandemic, Kari and Nicholle began broadcasting each weekday at 5 PM with a 'Daily Wine Down'..... bringing up to date news and answering questions and concerns. Additionally, they featured two to three guest per week from the Chapin community, highlighted feel good stories on WOW Wednesday and had a more relaxed and interactive program on FUN Friday. These broadcast may be found on their YouTube channel.
Currently, they are providing information on events in the Chapin community and interviewing Chapin businesses and nonprofits on Sunday evenings with their Weekly Wine Down series. This series will run from February 1st through Labor Day Weekend.
If you have questions, you may ask them in comments during their Facebook Live episodes or submit them before air time at .
