Sun Prairie residents will have some important decisions to make when they head to the polls on April 5. And the Sun Prairie Media Center is offering extensive programming to help residents make those decisions.

Thanks largely to candidate forums hosted by Chris Mertes and Don Hooser of the public-affairs program “Talk of the Town,” KSUN viewers will soon have access to programs specifically produced to assist voters in making informed choices during the upcoming spring election.

“Talk of the Town” will soon tape two candidate forums: On March 4, District 4 challengers Russ Wied and David Virgell will record a forum at the Sun Prairie Media Center. Wied and Virgell are vying for the seat left open by departing City Council Alder Mary Polenske.

Then on March 18 SPASD School Board candidates Stephen Elmer, Lisa Goldsberry, Latoya Holiday, Diana McFarland, and Steve Schroeder will record a “Talk of the Town” forum taped at Sun Prairie City Hall Council Chambers. The five candidates are vying for three available seats.

Also, on Sunday, March 6, SPARC will be hosting a candidate forum at the Sun Prairie East High School’s Performing Arts Center that will include all candidates listed above as well as candidates (such as incumbents Steve Stocker and Maureen Crombie as well as Brent Eisberner) who are running unopposed. This forum is scheduled to be moderated by SPMC director Jeff Robbins and will air live at 3 PM on March 6 on KSUN.

All forums will be broadcast on KSUN and available for on-demand viewing through the SPMC’s Sun Prairie Media Center app, on, and through the Media Center’s Roku and Apple TV channels. For times when the forums will be seen on KSUN, please check the schedule at

In addition, there are several interviews with candidates that have been conducted for 103.5 FM The Sun Community Radio with hosts Bill Baker and Andy Schoenherr. For times when those interviews will run, please check
