Five student production programs from Freed-Hardeman University have been named finalists in the National Broadcasting Society’s Student Electronic Media & Audio Video Production competition. The Grand Prize winners from among the national finalists will be announced at the society’s National Student Production Competition Awards Show in Washington, D.C., March 24.
The five programs, which are entries in the audio/video category, are “Molly Plyler Interview,” hosted by Jared McLeod and Spencer Davidson; “HalloWednesday,” conducted by Davidson; “The Adventures of William Bradford: Episode 2,” produced by John Couch; “FHU Improv-a-ganza,” produced by Couch and hosted by Davidson; and “Vantage Point on FHn,” hosted by Clay Batts and directed by David Domingue.
FHU’s local chapter of NBS is comprised of students studying communication, including electronic media, convergent media and journalism. The goal of NBS is to aid college media students in transitioning to the professional world. FM91 Station Manager Ron Means has served as NBS Chapter Advisor at FHU for the past twelve years.
“I am extremely proud of all these students who are being recognized for their talent, dedication and creativity on a national level,” Means says.
Forrest Doddington, television studio manager at FHU, adds, “Becoming a national finalist is already material worthy of inclusion on a professional resume. Receiving the Grand Prize award would simply be icing on top.”
