Students at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M in Miami are taking it upon themselves to liven up the schools public access channel with a new weekly broadcast of campus life.
"It's entirely student run," says Delayna Fitzgerald, the President of NEO 13. "We perform every job and it's very difficult, but we know how to do it."
Fitzgerald says she had an epiphany last fall to turn the college public access station from PowerPoint shows of school events to a revamped tongue-in-cheek news show.
But she says it wasn't easy to turn the dream into reality.
"We had people who were essentially against us and everything we were trying to do, and told us we couldn't do it and we basically said 'well watch, we can do it with no money and with our own resources,'" says Fitzgerald.
Though they do receive a small stipend from the campus for club activities the students use their own free time, computers, software and even microphones to make the weekly 30 minute show happen.
