Black Hills State University’s student-run TV station, KBHU-TV, will provide live coverage of the South Dakota Supreme Court sessions next week.
The state Supreme Court is holding its September/October 2013 Term of Court at BHSU Sept. 30-Oct. 2. The court will hear oral arguments in three cases each morning with the cases starting each day at 9 .m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. The sessions, which will be held in the Jacket Legacy Room inside the David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union, will be available to Midcontinent subscribers on channel 5 and WOW customers on channel 16.
"The student staff of KBHU-TV and I are excited to be offering live coverage of the state Supreme Court proceedings to the overflow rooms on BHSU's campus and the entire Northern Hills region,” said Dr. Scott Clarke, BHSU assistant professor of telecommunication and KBHU-FM and KBHU-TV advisor. “Our telecast will give students and community members who can't attend the sessions in person the chance to be an active part of the judicial process."
KBHU-TV began telecasting to Spearfish in 2006. The student-run station increased reach to Belle Fourche, Sturgis, Lead, and Deadwood in 2011. Students previously telecasted the 2013 BHSU Commencement live and currently air the Lead City Council meetings each week. KBHU-TV offers nine hours of original programming each day, including the student-produced programs Black Hills Revealed, in its second season, Exotic Conversations, in its third season, and KBHU-TV News , now in its eighth season. Programming is available worldwide at www.kbhutv.com.
