The January 2019 edition of the “Out of the Blue” television magazine show from Middle Tennessee State University features conversations on equality on country radio, Greek life on campus, and a unique educational partnership that provides a “collegiate” experience for local high schoolers. Join us to hear:
• Beverly Keel, chair of MTSU’s Department of Recording Industry, who’s been working to change the conversation about — and the chart presence of — female artists in country music.
• Leslie Merritt, director of MTSU’s Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, who explains that out-of-the-classroom participation in Greek events can enhance students’ entire college experience.
• Dr. Leisa Justus, principal of Murfreesboro’s Blackman High School, who discusses the educational partnership that created the Blackman Collegiate Academy to give high school students a preview of university life via regular campus visits and learning opportunities.
Watch “Out of the Blue,” with host Andrew Oppmann, on Murfreesboro cable Channel 9 daily at 7 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and on NewsChannel5+ at 3:30 p.m. Sundays. “Out of the Blue” is also available on other cable outlets in Middle Tennessee, so check local listings.
