Chatterbox, the 30-minute Sam Houston State University student-produced television show that focuses on people, places, and events in Huntsville and on campus, is currently airing shows for the spring semester on KSHU-TV, Channel 7, every Monday at 4 p.m. Each show will be rebroadcast on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the same time throughout the remainder of the semester.

Chatterbox was created by students in the SHSU Department of Mass Communication. It is jointly produced and promoted by broadcast production students and student members of Priority One – SHSU’s student run public relations firm and hosted by Peter Roussel, Phillip G. Warner Endowed Chair.

“This show, and the production and promotion aspects involved, truly serves as a hands-on experience for students,” Roussel said. “It is a meaningful way of preparing Broadcast Communication students for their future careers.”

Each episode features people, places, and events occurring in Huntsville and on the SHSU campus. The Priority One team secure guests, prepare questions, and promote the show. Previous guests have included SHSU President Dana Hoyt, Dean of the College of Arts and Media Ron Shields, Head Football Coach K.C. Keeler, Wynne Home Arts Center Cultural Coordinator Linda Pease, and others.
