ASU-TV to produce and air programs featuring United Way agencies

Dec. 7, 2009 -- Arkansas State University’s student-run ASU-TV is teaming with the United Way of Northeast Arkansas to produce a half-hour interview program to air throughout December and January on Suddenlink Cable Channel 18. The program, entitled “ASUnited Spotlights,” will air Tuesdays at 9 a.m., Thursdays at 2 p.m., Saturdays at 9 p.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m. Two United Way agencies are featured in each episode and more episodes are scheduled to be produced early in 2010. The first episode will run Tuesday, Dec. 8

“ASU-TV is excited about the opportunity to partner with an organization that impacts so many individuals throughout the region,” said Collin Pillow, ASU-TV faculty adviser. “This type of program not only provides valuable visibility for non-profit agencies, but also continues the College of Communications’ endeavors to educate our students through real-world experiences.”

Aaron Reddick, a senior radio-television major from Paragould, will serve as the host of the program, with Anna Callaway, a senior radio-television major from Warren, will be the director. The production team is made up of ASU radio-television students who will change for each program.

“United Way of Northeast Arkansas is pleased to have been selected to participate in the Arkansas State University's Radio/TV program ‘ASUnited Spotlights,’” said Selena Barber, 2009 board president for United Way of Northeast Arkansas. “The public awareness created by ‘ASUnited Spotlights’ will be immeasurable for the programs and agencies that participated.

“Our hope is for a continued partnership that will both further United Way's mission of community impact while providing an effective training ground for Arkansas State University students.”
