KASU hosts live broadcast debate for First District representative's seat Oct. 21

October 14, 2010 -- Three competitors on the Nov. 2 general election ballot who are seeking Representative Marion Berry’s seat in Congress will discuss current issues in a live broadcast debate Thursday, Oct. 21, at 6:30-8 p.m. on the ASU-Jonesboro campus. Green party candidate Ken Adler, Democratic candidate Chad Causey and Republican candidate Rick Crawford are running for Arkansas’ First Congressional District seat, which became open earlier this year when Rep. Berry decided not to seek re-election to the office he has held since 1997.

The three candidates will respond to panelists’ questions in the ASU-TV studio located in the Education-Communications Building. The debate  is presented by the ASU Department of Political Science, ASU-TV, radio station KASU, and the Jonesboro Sun.

The panelists, who will direct questions to the candidates, include Jonesboro Sun editor Roy Ockert; KASU’s local host of “Morning Edition,” Mark Smith; and senior radio-television major Shannon O’Nale from Cabot, who is the student station manager of ASU-TV. The moderator will be Dr. Richard Wang, chair of the ASU Department of Political Science.

Thursday night’s program will be cablecast on ASU-TV, Channel 18, and broadcast over-the-air at 91.9 KASU FM. The KASU signal is available worldwide through internet streaming at KASU-dot-org.

For more information, contact Mike Doyle (, KASU station manager, at (870) 972-3486.
