WKSU Brings Community Conversations to Ashtabula
WKSU continues its regional series of open forums with WKSU’s Community Conversations at Kent State University at Ashtabula on Thursday, Sept. 29, from 6:30-8 p.m. Attendees at the free event will be encouraged to contribute topics and issues they feel deserve increased attention. Registration through an Eventbrite link on the Events page at WKSU.org is requested to reserve seating and refreshments.
This is the ninth of an ongoing series of discussions at locations throughout Northeast Ohio. Upcoming WKSU Community Conversations events will take place at Kent State University at Trumbull on Nov. 17 and the WKSU Broadcast Center in Kent on Dec. 15. The event in Ashtabula will encourage participants to present issues that concern people living in Ashtabula County and the surrounding area.
“This has been a fantastic year of events, and we’re not through yet!” says Mark Syroney, WKSU’s senior director for external affairs. “The discussions that WKSU’s Community Conversations have prompted have been compelling, and are a truly inside look at the highs and lows of life in Northeast Ohio.”
In Ashtabula on Sept. 29, WKSU News Director Andrew Meyer, Program Director Ele Ellis and Reporter/Producer Kabir Bhatia will represent WKSU in the open forum. Each Community Conversations’ event features different members from the WKSU news and programming staff.
Information on current events and results from past WKSU Community Conversations are available on the project’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/WKSUcommunity. Additional details and links for Eventbrite registration are at WKSU.org. If you are unable to register online, call 330-346-5670 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
