“Global Alert” on WIUP-FM (90.1) Hosted by IUP Student Professional Journalists

Posted on 10/9/2009 8:20:09 AM

Tune in to Global Alert on WIUP-FM (90.1) on Sunday, October 11, 2009, from 11:00 a.m. to noon for the second of two shows on White’s Woods, the forest near the IUP campus that offers recreation to students and citizens alike.

A proposal to cut 21 percent of the trees from the 250-acre forest has prompted a political fight in the Nov. 3 White Township Board of Supervisors election.

The Global Alert show on October 11 will feature two advocates for and against the tree-cutting plan—local forester David Babyak and Friends of White's Woods President Michael Kesner, respectively.

Listener phone calls and questions are invited. Call 724-357-7971 at 11:00 a.m. on October 11 and suggest your question.

Spend Homecoming Sunday listening to and participating in Global Alert. Join the discussion about the future of White’s Woods. Think global, act local.

Global Alert is sponsored by the IUP chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. Questions? Contact faculty adviser David Loomis, Journalism Department, at doloomis@iup.edu.
