Featuring ambitious programming that will include the community and significant student involvement, The University of Findlay is returning to television with the relaunch of UFTV on Time Warner Cable Channel 20/96.
To celebrate the occasion, the public is invited to a relaunch open house from noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 2 in the University’s studio located in the lower level of Egner Center for the Performing Arts on Frazer Street.
Tours, equipment demonstrations and refreshments will be offered. There also will be interview opportunities with Dr. Cheri Hampton-Farmer, chair of the University’s Communication Department; AJ du Fresne, UFTV manager; and other faculty and students involved with the relaunch.
UFTV is being revived to provide educational and informational content in short segments that will showcase the talents of University students, staff and community members. For instance, DuFresne said University professors will speak about a wide variety of topics in their fields of expertise, regional historical stories will be highlighted and cooking demonstrations will be included.
Along with Time Warner, which will provide UFTV viewing in more than 43,000 homes in Hancock County and Fostoria, UFTV will also be available on two other broadcast mediums, including UF’s web portal at www.findlay.edu/uftv in early December, and on Oiler Mobile.
