A new monthly program about CUNY, “Study with the Best,” premieres on CUNY-TV, Channel 75, in late November. The half-hour magazine format show will feature stories on CUNY programs, professors, students and alumni. Aimed primarily at a high school and college-age audience, the show will be anchored by students. Students from the various campuses will also serve as correspondents.

“Study with the Best” will use cutting-edge technology—vivid images, lively pacing and exciting effects,” said senior producer Professor Linda Prout, who is director of the Journalism Program at City College. “Our aim is to have compelling, informative stories that not only young people, but older viewers as well, will find of interest.”

The premiere episode includes segments on College Now, a collaboration between CUNY and the New York City Board of Education to prepare high school students for college-level studies; David Gillison, a Lehman College professor specializing in computerized art; Barbara Nevins Taylor, a City College graduate who is an investigative reporter for Channel 9; and the CUNY Jazz Festival.
