Washington State University cable TV channel devoted to health sciences

From staff reports

Washington State University has a new cable television channel devoted to health sciences topics.

WSU Health Sciences TV started airing Jan. 1. Programs are broadcast on channel 16 on the Comcast cable system and are only visible to Comcast subscribers in Spokane. However, much of the programming can be viewed on WSU Spokane’s YouTube channel.

The new cable channel features university-produced programs and material from outside sources, such as a series on food preparation from the Alaska Cooperative Extension Service.

“This is a new way for WSU to tell the story about its growing health sciences portfolio and to promote healthy living in general,” said WSU Spokane Chancellor Lisa Brown.

WSU-Spokane plans to explore making the programming available to other television outlets around the state, she said.

The channel is operated by program manager Doug Nadvornick and video producer Michael Bethely on the Spokane campus, with help from KSPS Public Television in Spokane and Northwest Public Television in Pullman.
