BELLINGHAM – Western Washington University’s new TV show, “Western Window” is now airing on the City of Bellingham’s TV Channel 10 (BTV10).
The magazine format TV show is produced monthly by Western students. Nearly a year in the making, “Western Window” is intended to showcase the excellence of Western’s students, faculty and programs while also highlighting the university’s partnerships and collaborative efforts in the local community and beyond.
Segments in this first show include stories on Western’s award-winning Vehicle Research Institute and its work with biomethane fuel; Western research on the distractions caused by cell phone use and the annual student trash fashion show.
“Western Window” is hosted by Patrick Dizney, Western Theatre Arts Department senior instructor.
“We are very excited that Bellingham and area residents will be able to enjoy these stories created and produced by Western students about the excellence of Western and the community we are proud to call home,” said Steve Swan, WWU vice president for University Relations. “We also are very appreciative of the city’s partnership with the university in airing this program on BTV10.”
“Western Window” is produced by WWU students participating in an internship class led by instructor Suzanne Blais.
