Anna Quinn of New Albany began supporting MPB nearly 25 years ago and is particularly fond of the quality television programs that MPB brings to Mississippi.
She enjoys Antiques Roadshow partly because “I have a few antiques I treasure and am always interested to see the types of pieces that appear on the show – and I love seeing what they’re worth!” She is also a fan of Sunday evenings on PBS, with shows like Downton Abbey, Poldark, Last Tango in Halifax and As Time Goes By. “If I’m at church I’m always sure to record Sunday night programming.”
Anna says that she appreciates that MPB puts truth and learning above hype. “Take Charlie Rose for example. He’s thoughtful and responsible. He’s respectful in his questions and takes the time to bring important information to viewers through his interviews. I trust MPB. And I trust it for my grandchildren. Its programs are always appropriate. They don’t go for shock value. That’s hard to find on TV today, so I appreciate MPB programs.”
The MPB Foundation is grateful to Anna and her late husband, Kenneth, for being part of the group of contributors that works together to keep MPB strong. We appreciate her ongoing support and enthusiasm for our programs and our drive to bring the world to Mississippi.
