PCN to host election town hall Oct. 10 at Penn State

October 03, 2012

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 town hall meeting, which will be held in the Greg Sutliff Auditorium in the Lewis Katz Building, is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The Greg Sutliff Auditorium is located at Bigler Road and Park Avenue.

The hour-long live program will allow college students and area residents the chance to share questions and comments about election 2012 with a guest panel. Panelists for the evening include Russ Eshleman, associate head of the Department of Journalism at Penn State; David Lowery, director of the Center of American Political Responsiveness; Chip Minemyer, executive editor of the Centre Daily Times; and John Peterson, former congressman.

For those unable to attend, participation will be made possible through email and Twitter. Comments and questions during the event can be sent to pcntv2012@pcntv.com or tweeted using #pcntv2012.

For those without access to cable or those unable to get to a TV, PCN’s LIVE coverage will also be made available online by subscribing to PCN Select at pcntv.com. For more information about the streaming service, visit http://pcntv.com/pcn-plus/subscribe-to-premium-content.

PCN will air live election coverage beginning at 8 p.m. Nov. 6. For more information about PCN and its statewide channel allocations, visit www.pcntv.com.
