C-NET Television Interviews Rick Bryant about the 2015 Festival

Rick Bryant C-NET interviewC-NET Television is Centre County’s government and education access television network. It’s available throughout Centre County on the Comcast and Windstream cable systems. (If you rely on rabbit ears, well, you’re out of luck.) The network’s programming features public meetings and concerts in addition to coverage of some high school sports and local festivals. If you tune in expecting a version of the old Saturday Night Live skit, Wayne’s World, you’ll be sadly disappointed. If, on the other hand, you can’t get enough of planning commission meetings, then you know all about the C-NET.

In case you’re thinking, “Oh, those are the folks who televise the U.S. Congress and funerals of public figures from Washington, DC,” you would be wrong. That’s C-Span. It’ an common mistake, according to Cindy Hahn, C-NET’s executive director.

C-NET’s offices are just down Allen Street, in the third floor of the State College Municipal Building. So I didn’t have to go far when Cindy invited me to sit down on camera with reporter Anne Danahy, an associate editor, Penn State News and Media Relations and former reporter for The Centre Daily Times to talk about this year’s Arts Festival. Anne and I have known each other for a long time and there’s nothing easier for me to talk about than the Arts Festival, so we had a great chat.
