Series Description

HUB CITY AT ITS BEST. A LOOK AT EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY INTERESTING IN BOSTON. HOSTED BY EMILY ROONEY. Series release date: 1/1997

Program Description

Unitil The Dec. 11th ice storm wiped out power to all of the roughly 28,000 homes and businesses serviced by the utility company Unitil in Massachusetts. The slow response and lack of communication with its customers has prompted a state probe and sent angry customers on a hunt to oust the provider from many communities.

Guests: Robert Schoenberger, CEO, Unitil

EOE: Public College Enrollment The financial crisis is causing many families to tighten their belts—which in turn has lead to a spike in public college enrollment. Higher education experts are seeing more parents push their children to more affordable college options, a trend referred to as “flight to price.” Guests: Robert Holub, Chancellor, UMass Amherst

54th Mass. Volunteer Regiment The 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Regiment will march in President-elect Barack Obama’s inaugural parade later this month. The regiment is an homage to the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, one of the nation’s first official black military units that fought for the Union in the American Civil War. Guests: Lt. Benny White, 54th Mass. Volunteer Regiment; Pvt. Steve Paschal, 54th Mass. Volunteer Regiment
