About SIUe Global Village
SIUE Global Village is a half-hour weekly magazine about the people of SIUE and their academic, cultural and social connections with the campus, the community, the nation and the world. This student-produced program features interviews with both SIUE people and the interesting individuals who visit campus to share their knowledge and talents. In addition, the program airs a number of field-produced, taped stories, from the arts and sciences to student activities and sports.
The program can be viewed on every cable TV system in St. Louis city and county via the Higher Education Channel, which feeds its program schedule to all cable systems by microwave from the studios of public television station KETC, Channel 9, in St. Louis. On the Illinois side of the river, SIUE Global Village's producer, a Mass Communications Department graduate assistant, delivers tapes of the show each week to cable TV outlets in Madison County. The combined coverage on this side of the river coupled with the TV household reach of the HEC network provides SIUE with a platform to reach almost 2 million of the 2.5 million TV viewers in the greater St. Louis area.
