Knightly News Celebrates Episode 50 of Podcast

By Brian Christiana

Knightly News Reporter

The Knightly News Media Club at Central Penn College recently celebrated its two-year anniversary with the 50th episode of the club’s podcast.

The first episode of the podcast featured co-host Paul Miller, Career Services Director Steve Hassinger and the late Nasir Harris. The 50th episode featured Dr. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams, interim co-president and provost, as the guest.

Episode 50 will be released Feb 20.

The episode focuses on different accomplishments Fedrizzi-Williams has achieved since taking over the position last fall.

Miller talked to her about many topics, which included: current initiatives, upcoming commencement as co-president and her most proud achievement at the school (listen to our podcast to hear what that is).

Media club member Michael Ademola and this reporter talked about many questions the student body had for her.

Fedrizzi-Williams was very honored and appreciative to be featured on the milestone.

“I was honored to be a part of the 50th podcast episode with Professor Miller, Brian Christiana and Michael Ademola,” Fedrizzi-Williams said. “I look forward to listening to the next 50 episodes.”

Because we are celebrating two years, we would like to look back at important moments in club history, including: The Bill Gladstone Project, Moving to the Boyer House and the Nasir Harris Studio Dedication.

The Bill Gladstone Project was an opportunity for the communication students to help a local real estate man with hands-on work. The students made a video that included his bobblehead.

The Knightly News made a huge splash and moved the podcast studio into the historic Boyer House in February 2017. The moving process was easy, and the club started working a week later. An open house was held at the building and over 30 faculty, staff and students showed up to celebrate this event.

The studio was dedicated in the summer of 2017 to honor the late Nasir Harris. He was one of the founding members of the club, and he really had a huge impact on the creation of the Knightly News. Harris was on the inaugural episode of the podcast and appeared on several other episodes.

In September 2017, the Knightly News decided to give thanks to him by naming the studio after him. The current members had a celebration with his family and members of the Central Penn family. There was a video presentation that included interviews, and quotes from his family. There were tears and smiles for the celebration.

The Knightly News wouldn’t be here also without the constant support from the community and fans. The goal of the club is to reach out and make a positive impact on the college.  The Knightly News wants to thank all the listeners of each podcast, and reader of each story.
