Officials said, "Chattanooga: Stronger Together is a celebration of service in our community.

Host Barbara Marter talks to nonprofit leaders about local service organizations and the impact they’re having for our neighbors in the Chattanooga area. Nonprofits face challenges to promote the good work they're doing in the community and WTCI PBS is playing an important role in those efforts. The program is funded by local grants from the Weldon F. Osborne Foundation and the Schillhahn-Huskey Foundation."

"Our community is only as strong and healthy as our nonprofits. Chattanooga: Stronger Together is bringing nonprofit organizations together to raise community awareness of the great work achieved by nonprofits”, said Barbara Marter, host of Chattanooga: Stronger Together.

The third season of Chattanooga: Stronger Together will premiere Sunday, Jan. 7, at 10:30 a.m. on WTCI 45.1. The first episode of the season will feature interviews with Taylor Bostwick from the Speech and Hearing Center and Dave Buck from Chattanooga Autism Center. Soon after, viewers will be able to watch the premiere, along with past episodes of Chattanooga: Stronger Together, for free in the PBS app. The PBS app allows viewers to watch their favorite PBS shows on-demand from their favorite device.
