Searching Videos

Looking for a video on WisEye.org?

The most efficient way to find what you are looking for is to use our global search bar. To narrow your search, include quotation marks with your search term or date like this:

“[SEARCH TERM]” – Example committee search: “Committee on Education” or “Senate Committee on Education” / Example bill search: “Senate Bill 199” or “SB 199”

 “[MONTH / DAY / YEAR]” Example date search: “December 4, 2022” or “May 7, 2017”

If you do not use quotation marks, the search will produce a broader list of coverage and programming. You can also use the global menu bar at the top of the site, or the global hamburger menu on the left, to choose from categories listed under “Programs” and “Coverage.” Within each category page, you can further filter your results by checking the category and keyword lists to the right.

Want to see a list of the most recent videos published at WisEye.org?

Use our search bar by clicking on it with your cursor and pressing Enter / Return without typing anything. Voila! A list of all archived videos will appear, chronologically ordered from most recent to oldest.

Note: WisconsinEye’s video archive extends to April of 2007, when we began operations.
