Around the Corner with John McGivern
What it is
Have you ever been driving through a community that just looked interesting? Maybe it was the beautiful landscape. It might have been the interesting businesses that lined the main street or the historical buildings you saw. Somehow you just knew that you had to stop and check it out.
The Emmy-award winning Around the Corner with John McGivern is that type of television show. It pulls you in and introduces you to the wonderful communities that make Wisconsin what it is. Milwaukee native John McGivern, actor and writer, hosts the show and shares many of his delightful insights on home, family, and just being human. Writer/historian John Gurda, Milwaukee born and bred, joins the team providing historical perspectives on each community. Michael McGivern, and yes, he is John’s brother, adds a look at community sports and recreational activities.
