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 (email@example.com), KASU
station manager, at (870) 972-3486.
