The January 2019 edition of the “Out of the Blue” television magazine show from Middle Tennessee State University, available to watch above, 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.
Along with viewing online anytime, you can 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” also is available as iTunes and Google Play podcasts and on other cable outlets in Middle Tennessee, so check local listings.
