North Country Matters To Air Season Finale April 19
North Country Matters, the only local civic affairs magazine style television program, will air the last show of season two on Potsdam Time Warner public access Channel 30 WCKN at 7 PM on Tuesday April 19th. NCM is produced by Clarkson University students in professor Dan Dullea’s TC 427 Intermediate Digital Video Production, a course offered by Clarkson University’s Communication and Media Department.
This show will feature a conversation between NCM producer Dan Dullea and novelist/ political columnist W.L. Swarts. Mr. Swarts, who describes himself as a progressive, is an independent candidate for New York State's 23rd District, which represents the north country of New York State. He is running against long-time incumbent, Republican Representative John McHugh. Mr. Swarts, in the midst of what he calls a “listening tour” of the district, visited the WCKN studio between stops at SUNY Potsdam and SUNY Plattsburg.
Additional segments will include stories about the annual Clarkson Senior Class Gift to the University, student housing on campus and a humorous fictional look at an unusual way one student does well on exams.
