ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., Feb. 9, 2005 —SBU-TV Channel 9 is airing its new program, titled “A Visit With the President.” The program features St. Bonaventure University’s president, Sr. Margaret Carney, O.S.F., S.T.D., as its host, and aims to create a means of TV communication with SBU students on a regular basis. The program began airing Friday, Feb. 10, at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.
“This communication will serve both students, and Sr. Margaret’s mission as SBU president,” said Paul Wieland, lecturer in The Russell J. Jandoli School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Sr. Margaret will serve as host, and also will choose her own guests to interview. The taping of the program will move from site to site on campus.
“A Visit with the President” will be produced by volunteers from Broadcast Seminar J/MC 420, the class that produces the weekly SBU-TV newscasts, under the guidance of Wieland. In addition, Mary Beth Garvin, a lab supervisor and adjunct professor at SBU, will edit the program in SBU’s Koop Lab.
The program will run for seven days beginning on the first or second Friday of the month, depending on the taping date. It will also run on Adelphia’s Cable Channel 6 to viewers in the Olean area the third Friday of each month at 11:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
