Campus Television will be hosting its first live morning show today at noon on Friday in the Lory Student Center Plaza.
The 30-minute show, which will air on channel 11 and will be live-streamed on ctv11.com, will feature news, sports, a cooking segment and an acoustic band.
â€œItâ€™s something Iâ€™ve always wanted to do, and this is my last semester, so why not?â€ said Kelley Robinson, CTVâ€™s News Director and the morning showâ€™s co-anchor.
Robinson said the show will feature less hard news and instead be fun and Homecoming-oriented.
The purpose of filming on the Plaza, said News Producer Emily Luft, is to garner more student engagement.
â€œNot everyone has cable, so this is a good way to show students what weâ€™re all about,â€ Luft said.
The crew will begin setting up and doing run-throughs at 8 a.m., and will broadcast live at noon.
â€œThere are a lot of logistical things involved with doing an outdoor show, so itâ€™s going to be interesting,â€ Robinson said.
