The Knightly News Media Club at Central Penn College announces The Knightly News Presents, an offshoot of the Knightly News Podcast, that allows students to do episodes about things that interest them.

The first such episode debuts with a two-part fantasy football themed show featuring club members Brian Christiana and Ian Kemmerer, and club co-adviser Paul Miller.

The show, separated into two different episodes, allows Christiana and Kemmerer to prepare listeners for their upcoming fantasy football drafts, typically occurring during the last two weeks of August until Labor Day.

During Episode 1, the discussion focuses on each individual’s top 25 players for 2017, as well as some important draft strategies for beginning players.

In Episode 2, the cast discusses new running backs and wide receivers on new teams, as well as some impact fantasy rookies for the upcoming season.

The Knightly News hopes to offer many more of these types of podcasts in the future, and already hasseveral in the works.

In our second segment of the week, we are honored to be joined by the former Senior Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania Jon Butchar.

Butchar has been a part of Professor Miller’s Media and Politics class in the past, discussing state and local government with our students from his wealth of experiences.

Butchar recorded several segments for future episodes, but in this segment discusses the importance of college students to be engaged with the political process.  He said, “In some areas (during the primary election held in May), turnout was under 8%.”

He went onto discuss the need for our colleges across the nation to educate and share the importance of politics in our daily lives with students.

You can look forward to hearing future segments with Jon about our current issues with North Korea and other topics.
