Over the years UnionTV34 has welcomed visitors, students, and boy and girl scouts of all ages to tour their studio and control room while getting a look at the current TV technology and view the achievements of the channel over the years. On Thursday, February 27th, 2020, for the first time, Kean University students, part of KeanTV, stopped by for a two hour tour with their professor.
“I am so grateful to UnionTV34 for all the support they’ve given to our students,” stated Kean University Professor Gina Gili. “We have been provided with an opportunity to give our students a firsthand view of a professional television studio, steps away from their classroom. The feedback and the opportunities to provide weekly programming has been truly invaluable to our students.”
During their visit at UnionTV34, they learned the ins and outs of how the channel runs, helped produce the weekly “Spotlight on Union” show hosted by Edess Damis, and tried their hand in hosting “Union Minute,” a weekly one minute spotlight of events throughout town posted on the Township’s social media platforms @TWPUnionNJ.
“I believe this was a great opportunity not only for the Kean students to grasp real-life experiences but for the Township to be able to expand their partnership with Kean University,” mentioned Sal Terrezza.
The tour ended with a Q&A with the Station Manager, Sal Terrezza.
