|NEW COLLEGE ENTERTAINMENT SHOW AIRS ON THE SOUTHEASTERN CHANNEL
HAMMOND – “College Night,” a new entertainment
show for university students, will air Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights
on the Southeastern Channel, Southeastern Louisiana University’s educational
access channel on Charter Cable Channel 18.
The 30-minute program is produced by
the Southeastern Channel in conjunction with Southeastern students in the
Department of Communication. It will air at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and Friday
nights and 10:30 p.m. Saturdays.
“College Night,” hosted by Southeastern
student veejays and reporters, features a variety of music for the college
audience, including music videos, a billboard countdown, and interviews
with top artists from the north shore region.
Headlining the first episode is an
interview with the nationally-known group from Baton Rouge, “Better Than
Ezra,” shot prior to the group’s September performance at the Columbia
Theatre for the Performing Arts.
The show also features previews of
upcoming films, student reactions to current movies, a corner for student
movie critics, and a spotlight on student-produced films at Southeastern.
Communication majors Randi Rousseau
of Ponchatoula and Choni Francis of Houston, Texas, are co-hosts of the
first episode, while Krystal Bouthe of Meraux and Natalie Crump of Baton
Rouge are reporters. Southeastern Channel staff member Paul Catalanotto
produced, directed and edited the program.
“'College Night’ offers a brand of
entertainment that will appeal to the college crowd and other younger viewers
in our audience,” said Rick Settoon, general manager of the Southeastern
Channel. “We’ve already seen that students really enjoy working on
the project as well as viewing it. So we know it’s also providing
good training for our Southeastern television students.”
