BackStory is a new public affairs monthly program hosted by Judy Lanzinger, former Ohio Supreme Court Justice. Working in partnership with the League of Women Voters, BackStory will present a new topic with expert guests to give viewers an informed non-partisan understanding of public policy, government processes and election voting issues.

BackStory is made possible, in part, by KeyBank and by a generous gift provided by Dr. Douglas and Suzanne Neckers.
