Livingston High School TV - LIVE Telethon and Celebration
May 13, 2014 Livingston, NJ – The Livingston High School Television Program, in partnership with Livingston Education Foundation (LEF), is proud to present a LHS TV Studio Telethon which will air on Saturday, June 7, 2014. The telethon will be aired live on Comcast Channel 34, FIOS Channel 26 and will also be LIVE-streamed online to viewers and alumni around the country. We invite you to spend some time with us as we celebrate 30 years of the Livingston High School television program and its contributions to the successful careers of countless graduates. Our goal is to raise money to expand the television production program so we can continue to serve the school and community while striving to achieve the most realistic television learning experience.
A majority of the telethon segments will take place within the walls of the current LHS Television Studio featuring productions from current students as well as bring you live performances from local bands, comedians, and magicians designed to entertain all audiences. You will have a chance to meet and hear from our TV program graduates in addition to current and past faculty members who will recount their memories, successes and evolvement of our program. Students, alumni, teachers and staff members have been working on the project which will be the largest LHS TV production to date. The program will air for thirteen continuous hours starting Saturday, June 7th at 11 a.m. and running through Sunday, June 8th at 12:00 a.m. Portions of the telethon will also be re-broadcasted as part of our regular daytime broadcast schedule.
