â€śWe are thrilled to be able to continue the show and provide students with this real-world project,â€ť said Professor Julian Costa, executive producer of the program. â€śWhat makes this even more exciting is that our returning crew members are truly coming into their own as leaders.â€ť
Brenda Todd, of Randolph, is a sophomore majoring in broadcasting arts and technology who has rejoined the production team. â€śNow in our fourth season, we have developed a dedicated core group of people who are committed to the success of the show,â€ť said Todd. â€śWe are having a lot of fun as we continue to learn and explore new ideas. We welcome any students at CCM to join us who have an interest in television production.â€ť
Daniel Giordano, a sophomore majoring in business administration from Fairfield, will begin his second semester as one of the showâ€™s student hosts. Giordano had previously served as a camera operator and audio technician for the program. â€śIâ€™m so excited for this opportunity,â€ť Giordano said, â€śItâ€™s truly a pleasure getting to come in every week and learn something from our schoolâ€™s brightest and best.â€ť The program is entirely a volunteer effort.
Other student crew members include Daniil Barkov, a sophomore majoring in business administration from East Hanover, and Matthew Sinnott, a sophomore majoring in criminal justice from Randolph.
Costa, an adjunct professor of business and communication, designed the program to provide students with a realistic experience in television production.

Itâ€™s always good to highlight the talent we have on campus with our faculty and staff.â€ť
