Students Give Radio Assist to 'Stop Aggressive Driving' Campaign
PLATTSBURGH, NY __Communication students at the State University of New York College
at Plattsburgh will be listening to one of their class projects well beyond the end
of the semester ' on the radio. As part of an advanced radio production class, a team
of students created a 'mini' radio campaign for the 'Stop Aggressive Driving' Program by
Clinton County Traffic Safety.
Student producers Lauren Bennett, Virginia Cossart, Matthew Luke and Damien Quinlan worked with Clinton County STOP DWI Program Specialist, Molly Lawrence, to produce several radio-based public service announcements.
Cossart, the student project manager, was excited about the project and 'happy to be able to assist the county and possible save some lives.'
After hearing the final projects, Lawrence said, 'They sound very good, and I was impressed with the students.'
The public service announcements were distributed to radio stations in upstate New York and Vermont, including WIRY in Plattsburgh and WCHP in Champlain, and should be airing through the end of summer. It is expected that the spots will begin broadcasting in the next two weeks.
