December 09, 2015
College of Mass Communication and Media Arts Dean Dafna Lemish wrote the following:Dear all,
TITLE: outstanding performance by the RREE special Sports Preview team broadcast live on WSIU December 3, 2015.
Jak Tichenor who was at a loss of words (imagine that!) described it as follows:
"Hands-down, this is the best live, student produced television program I've seen on WSIU in all my years with the station. Great visual story-telling in all the field packages, superb on-camera performances by the talent, and outstanding technical execution behind the scenes.
This is a fantastic example of the "hands-on" learning experience that has set SIU's Department of Radio-Television and Digital Media apart as a national leader for more than half a century.
Congratulations to everyone who had a hand in this production. I know without a doubt that each of you will represent SIU with honor and distinction in our industry for years to come!"
I join the congratulations, and want to thank the team of faculty and staff that work so hard with our students to bring them to this level of excellence, in particular: Greg Todd, Joey Helleny, Dennis Galloway, Jak Tichenor, and Abby Hargrave.
A perfect example of what the collaboration between the academic side and WSIU in MCMA can achieve!
