A University of Alabama Honors College class helped create five public discussions broadcast on Alabama Public Television. Topics included fake news, rural healthcare, guns in Alabama, the opioid crisis, and the MeToo movement.
The Town Hall class was created by Bob McCurley who served as Director of the Alabama Law Institute, the State’s law revision agency, from 1975 through 2011. Students researched possible topics for discussion and identified experts who could speak on the selected topics. The programs were recorded in Studio UA, located in the University’s Digital Media Center.
Dr. Jennifer Greer, associate provost for UA, served as the series moderator. I served as one of several producers who worked with the class to develop the programs.
