Joplin, MO – A “Newsmakers” program on the Green Dot program at Missouri Southern State University and a new student-produced series will be offered on KGCS-TV.

The upcoming “Newsmakers” interview program focuses on the Green Dot program, which is a proactive approach to dealing with personal violence on campus. Guests are Ken Kennedy, chief of the University Police Department, Josh Doak, director of Residence Life, and Deb Fort, director of Project Stay.

It will air at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, through Thursday, Oct. 6, and again at 9:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3.

The new student-produced “Country Music Videos” will begin airing the week of Oct. 2. It is hosted and produced by communication major Michael Reynolds, who will introduce the videos and provide insight into the artists and their music.
