Change is Good!

Change is good…unless no one realizes the change.

Today I decided to take a trip down to our local PBS broadcasting station, WVPT. Most JMU students and faculty have seen those four letters while driving onto main campus, but recently JMU has bought out the space that was previously known as WVPT.

As a Centennial Scholar (a scholarship program at JMU)  I am required to do 100 hours of community service and this year I have decided to volunteer at the news station and gain some experience through it. But there was one problem…There was no news station when I got there! After doing a little research I’ve found that Harrisonburg’s WVPT has made a major move!

At their new location on MLK Jr, Way, WVPT is sitting beautifully on the corner and very hard to miss for a passer-by. For those of us who never realized they made such a move, it was actually very easy to miss. I am very excited to be able to work with WVPT at this new location and it will definitely allow me a chance to better my public relations skill with helping get the word out about the move. Also, after speaking with the director there is a great possibility for me to be able to add some publications to my portfolio as a volunteer/intern!
