Point TV’s Fall Forecast
Although the new school year has only just begun, Point TV has hit the ground running and is already hard at work, making decisions and coming up with original concepts for this semester’s exciting programming. Additionally, they are operating under new student management in an updated environment. The studio office and editing bays have been remodeled with new editing tables, editing systems, and lighting.
“The studio remodel began as part of a design contest initiated by PLNU’s ‘Designing Commercial Interiors’ course.” explains Media Operations Manager, Rick Moncauskas. “The entire studio was gutted, the ceiling and light fixtures were redesigned, our walls were repainted with specific colors, the floor was redone, our furniture was replaced, and we were able to purchase all new computers.” Studio users feel that their options, abilities, and proficiency have been improved along with the space.
So, what is on the lineup for this year’s broadcast? Well, most of the familiar shows have returned with the addition of some freshly developed programs. Coastline News, a twenty minute biweekly newscast, will air every other Thursday night at 8pm.
Likewise, Loma Sports Tonight, an ESPN style sports report, will air Thursday nights at 8 p.m. on the weeks that Coastline is not produced. Loma Sports will also air four live-to-tape basketball games on a special edition of the show known as Sea Lions’ Basketball. Four men’s basketball games will be cablecast on Friday, November 14th and Saturday, November 15th.
Acoustic Showcase is slated to feature more of Point Loma’s musically-talented student body. Reel Students is back and will include a look behind the scenes of several student films. The Point TV crew will also take on the ongoing 60-120 Second Film Challenge – where student film production teams come together to make some super-short films –some which have gotten into the San Diego Shorts film festival.
Campus happenings will be presented each week on Heynouncements, a short vlog style announcement series. HeySB Addresses will also be produced on a frequent basis to keep the student body aware of what their officers are doing to better our campus life.
Point TV will be producing a comedy show that is planned to go live in front of a live studio audience. For information on programs and their air times, please follow @pointtv.23 on Instagram, @plnupointtv on Twitter, like Point TV on Facebook, or visit http://pointtv23.com/channel-23-schedule/.
Managing all of the production details at Point TV this year is Junior Media Communications major Caleb Daniels. Under Daniels are Coastline News Director, Samantha Watkins, Sports Directors, Hilary Zeber and Ricky Zollinger, Productions Manager, Angel Zamora, and Public Relations Manager, Ross Nederhoff. These students, under the guidance of Media Communications professor and Point TV advisor, Alan Hueth, will lead the station in its service to the entire student body and are available for any inquiries the PLNU community may have throughout the year.
“I'm excited to be the head of such a talented group of students and hope to see the results of their hard work spread to all corners of campus this year. My main goal is to keep a highly professional level of productions coming out of Point TV. I also want to better our exposure within the community.” says Caleb Daniels in regards to his vision for this year at Point TV.
