Brenau University students and organizations have a chance to get on television. WXIA-TV, Atlanta’s 11Alive, will broadcast live from the Gainesville square from 5 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, during the early news segment for the NBC network affiliate. The Golden Tigers cheerleaders will be there, along with mascot H.J. and the soccer team. But others – including student organizations and sororities – are encouraged to turn out with their hand-made signs, Brenau paraphernalia and whatever else it takes to attract attention to try to get on the air. As the NBC affiliates, 11Alive televises the Olympic Games during prime time in Atlanta, so flags will be distributed to the crowd to generate a show of support for TEAM USA.
If you are going to be there, please contact Regina Mansfield, the Gainesville Main Street Manager, at 770-297-1141 or at http://www.downtowngainesville.com, and Danielle Miller, ude.uanerb@edefidd or 770-534-3168, so we can alert producers that you’re in the crowd in case they want their reporter to talk to you on camera.
Hope you can be there!
