Frontline comes to WLRN-TV


WLRN Radio is the place you turn to for in-depth news and information.  It’s the kind of journalism you trust and have come to rely on every day.    Now we are crossing platforms to offer investigative journalism to our television audience by adding FRONTLINE to our programming lineup. 


One of America’s leading news documentary series, Frontline offers a compelling look at complex, vital and often-controversial subjects.  In addition, this award winning critically acclaimed series has affected change in our world: freeing innocent prisoners, sparking U.N. resolutions and inciting both social and political change.  



FRONTLINE Premieres Sunday October 14th at 10pm


10pm Premiere Episode - Blackout in Puerto RicoFrontline investigates Puerto Rico’s tragic state following the events of Hurricane Maria. Frontline highlights how the economic debt crisis that struck just before the storm put the U.S territory in such vulnerable conditions, as well as, the Federal government’s seemingly indifferent response to the tragedy.
