The Livingston High School TV Studio celebrated 30 years of teaching and producing high school television on Saturday, June 7 with a LIVE 13-hour fundraising telethon.
Tony-nominated actress and Livingston alum (’95) Leslie Kritzer (Hairspray, Legally Blonde, A Catered Affair) served as a host. She recently recalled her LHS years in her acclaimed one-woman show, “A Beautiful Disaster.”
LHS graduates made numerous tributes to the station on Twitter @lhstvtelethon, crediting teachers and the studio for giving them their first break into film and broadcasting careers. Read more in the Alternative Press by clicking HERE.
