Call for Proposals

WDSE•WRPT is seeking an independent producer for HOME ON THE RANGE (w.t.), a new bi-monthly digital-first series that aims to showcase lesser-known or less explored histories of Northern Minnesota. Through the guidance of an engaging “history expert” host, we will be taken on journeys into the past to uncover stories of the bizarre, unexplored, and intriguing. Told in a fast-paced narrative and experimenting with new and different digital styles, this series will target younger audiences on YouTube and social media.

Estimated Season One Release: Weekly, April – June, 2022

Applicants are required to pitch two unique story ideas. These stories should be 6-10 minutes in length and designed for multiplatform distribution (digital-first, but also viewable on-air).
