USI faculty produce program to air on WNIN

Contact for more information:
A 30-minute television program created by two members of the University of Southern Indiana communications faculty will broadcast on WNIN-TV 9 February 2.

Dr. Dave Black, assistant professor of communications, and Dr. Bob West, assistant professor of advertising, collaborated to produce “Always There: Evansville African-Americans and Their Church.”

The program explores the role of the church in the lives of nine Tri-State residents: Warren Hale, Delores Jackson, Classy Martin, Todd Robertson, Irene Saucer, Bertis Shane, Emily Starks, Dora Wilson, and John Wisdom.

In a series of interviews conducted by Black and West, the participants share various perspectives on African-American spiritual faith as well as memories of what church life meant to them growing up, its influence today, and their hopes for the future.

USI alumna Kami Boyd provides the program’s introduction. Boyd is a member of the WFIE weather team and is a broadcast personality on 104FM WIKY.

Black joined the University in 1998 and teaches courses in television production and the broadcasting/cable industries. He holds a Ph.D. in communications from University of Tennessee-Knoxville, previously taught at Bowling Green State University, and worked as a television director in Nashville, Tenn.

West ’78 joined the University full-time in 1999 and teaches courses in advertising and speech. He holds a doctorate in speech communication from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale and has taught at the collegiate level since 1984. He also worked as director of operations at WFIE-TV in Evansville, is co-advisor of the USI Student Advertising Club, and is a former president of the Advertising Club of Evansville.

“Always There: Evansville African-Americans and Their Church” will air at 9 p.m. February 2 on WNIN. The program was produced through the University of Southern Indiana Scripps Howard Video Complex.
