In January 2016 work produced by students at the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication began airing on New York public television station WLIW21 as part of the station’s “Arts Beat” program.  The student’s segments were originally broadcast on “For Your Island,”  part of the Advanced Television Production course (RTVF 164) taught by Associate Professor Peter Gershon, PhD, in the Department of Radio, Television, Film. WLIW21 is the Long Island PBS affiliate station owned by WNET, and currently reaches nearly 1.5 million households each week throughout New York City’s five boroughs, Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
