Penn State will be spotlighted in a new Pennsylvania Cable Network series that profiles the state's economic engines at 8 p.m. Sunday, June 23. “Discover PA Business," a collaboration between PCN and the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, began as a monthly series earlier this year.
The Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) will air a live panel discussion about the coming presidential election, to be held Oct. 10 in the Greg Sutliff Auditorium in the Lewis Katz building on the University Park campus. The town hall meeting is open to the public. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the broadcast will begin at 7 p.m.
The Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) will go on the road to visit select campuses in order to gauge reaction about the upcoming election less than a month before voters take to the polls Nov. 6, and Penn State will be one of those stops. Live "Election 2012" town hall sessions will replace the network's "PCN Call-In" program, with a stop at 7 p.m. Oct. 10 on the University Park campus.
The College of Communications at Penn State and Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) have partnered to launch a Centre County Bureau on the University Park campus, creating the only newsroom for a statewide network on a college or university campus in Pennsylvania. The bureau, located in the ComMedia facility at Innovation Park, will be staffed by two student interns per semester. The students have the chance to learn the inner workings of newsroom production, from research to shooting and editing footage for use on air at PCN.
A live broadcast of "CEO Roundtable," presented by the Pennsylvania Business Council and the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN), will air from 7-9 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 19. A panel of prominent Pennsylvania business leaders will join Penn State President Graham Spanier to discuss higher education and its impact across the Commonwealth.
Penn State President Graham Spanier will appear at 8 p.m. on the Tuesday, March 29 edition of PCN's "On the Issues." The one-on-one interview will cover issues related to the proposed state budget, which calls for a reduction of $660 million, or more than 50 percent, in appropriations for the state's public institutions of higher education. The proposed cut represents a reduction of $182 million for Penn State alone. The program will be rebroadcast on PCN at 9 a.m. on March 30, and will be available online by visiting http://www.pcntv.com/pcnplus and clicking on the "Live Signal" button.
Ag Progress Days, which wrapped up this year's run today (Aug. 21), will be highlighted on PCN, Comcast cable station channel 22, today and Friday. Penn State's annual agriculture expo featured demonstrations, exhibitions, vendors and livestock. The theme for the 2008 edition, held at the University's Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center at Rock Springs, was "Ag Energy: Harnessing the Potential."
