Point TV Featuring Exciting New Show Line-up
Brand new shows and ongoing classic shows, are both in the works this semester at Point TV. Our students are already hard at work producing new content, as well as training new students. There are fourteen new faces in the TV workshop class who are fresh out of Introduction to TV & Film, and eager to learn the ropes.
The Point TV leadership team is also gearing up to produce a successful semester of shows. Caleb Daniels is returning for his fourth semester as the station’s fearless manager. Madisen Steele will continue to bring dynamic new features to our veteran show, Coastline News. Brenna Ross will once again be producing Loma Sports Tonight, as well as two live PLNU basketball broadcasts. Nicholas Macedo is prepared to make sure every Point TV production is ready for take-off as the Production Manager. Jonathan Pickett will continue to produce bi-weekly Press Releases to keep you up-to-date on all Point TV happenings this semester, and Will Alvarado is returning as our Marketing and Promotions guru.
“We’re excited to see many new and familiar faces both on screen and behind,” said Alvarado. “Expect many laughs, hard-hitting stories and live basketball games.”
Two new shows will be hitting Channel 23 this semester, and one relatively new show will be returning.
Professors in Cars Getting Coffee is a unique new talk show that was conceived in last semester’s Scriptwriting class by junior media communication major Victor Carno. It will feature various PLNU staff venturing to local coffee shops with our host as we learn what all students are dying to know: what do professors do with their lives outside of the classroom?
“I’m new to the whole producing and directing gig, so I’m appreciative for the opportunity and excited for some fun learning experiences this semester,” Carno said.
The second new show is Movie Reviews with Johnny Montalvo. After Johnny’s passion for film critiquing became obvious to Point TV Supervisor Dr. Alan Hueth, he immediately pitched the idea to Montalvo, who was more than happy to share his ideas about what films he likes, and how the ones he doesn’t like could be better.
Additionally, literature major Jordan Hill will be returning to produce the comedy news program The Bye-Weekly Show with his talented team of writers. Last semester they brought you segments like “Professors Read Mean Rate-my-professor Reviews,” as well as interviews with guests like PLNU president Dr. Bob Brower and Los Angeles-based musician Nick Leng. This semester, he’ll be interviewing best-selling author and speaker Bob Goff. Be on the lookout for the first episode of The Bye-Weekly Show in February.
Another unique Point TV production this semester will be the broadcast of a TEDxPLNU conference on campus. This is an independently organized event based on ideas that are worth spreading. In this day-long conference, speakers and videos will come together to enlighten, as well as spark discussion. Be sure to tune into Point TV’s Youtube page for a live stream of the event.
Point TV will continue producing other classics such as Acoustic Showcase, where we highlight talented artists on campus, Reel Students, a program that showcases students short film work and interviews the filmmakers on their challenges, and The Beat, which is an in-depth look at some interesting topics on PLNU’s campus.
“We’re looking to bring more news, sports, music, comedy and short films to the PLNU community,” said Daniels. “As Point TV’s Station Manager, I’m excited to help shape the creativity of our student producers in ways that will serve that community.”
