Be Sure To Tune In On Thursdays For "Ferris State Live"

BIG RAPIDS - Tune in to Fox 32 on Thursday nights at 10:30 p.m. to check out the "Ferris State Live" television show following the local evening news broadcast.

"Ferris State Live" is a new Ferris State University public affairs show broadcasted across northern Michigan through a partnership with Cadillac-based Fox 32. The show is co-hosted by Leah Nixon, assistant director of News Services at Ferris; Scott Roman, a local radio personality and veteran television host; and Sandy Gholston, a marketing specialist at Ferris, who additionally serves as the show’s executive producer. The show is produced by senior students in the Television and Digital Media Production program under the direction of TDMP assistant professor Glen Okonoski.

"Ferris State Live" features interviews with faculty, staff, students and other members of the campus community at Ferris. The first show, which aired Thursday (Sept. 17), spotlighted Ferris President David Eisler and FSU Vice President and General Counsel Miles Postema. President Eisler discussed the past, present and future of Ferris while Postema talked about the great activities that were a part of Founders’ Day and the planning that has gone into celebrating the 125th anniversary of the founding of Ferris State University.

In the debut show, Roman and Gholston wrapped up with a discussion about news and sports on the Ferris campus.

In addition to the guests, there will be a segment devoted to news and sports on campus to bring viewers up to speed on the latest happenings at Ferris State University.

While the show will be featured on Fox 32, Thursday nights at 10:30 p.m., it also ultimately will be available online through streaming on the Ferris State University Web site.

"Ferris State Live" is a collaborative effort between University Advancement and Marketing and TDMP.

We hope you will tune in for the first of many episodes of "Ferris State Live."
