"Torchy Seuss Killed the Gallery Star" is an episode of Ferris State Live produced by the spring 2010 TVPR 499 class at Ferris State University. Produced on February 22nd and aired on February 26th of 2010, it is the sixth show of the spring semester of 2010 and the 19th episode of the 2009-2010 season overall.
Kelsey Schnell, Editor-in-Chief of the, came on to talk about how the Torch began looking into new networking and more newsroom options. Leah wondered what top journalists look for today. Kelsey explained that in the past, anybody who could write a good story was considered good material for journalism. As of the 21st century, anybody who can master a particular medium of delivery of stories is considered a journalist, regardless of how well-written their stories are. Internet media are particularly capable of compensating for deficiencies in story writing, since hyperlinks provide endless opportunities for second opinions. Nevertheless, good application of snippets is expected to result in a good story being told.
Scott pondered on how journalistic credibility is checked, to which Kelsey replied that Torch editors are careful to overview "leaked" information to check its integrity. Along with a few other topics, one thing that was emphasized is that the Torch now has a Twitter account. Scott, Leah, and Kelsey finally joked that they would enjoy a class on messy desks.
All About the Art Gallery
Diane Cleland, Assistant Director of the Ferris Art Gallery, came on the show to talk about her role in art gallery operations. She made a point of how 2010's most popular exhibit up to that point was "The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss." Diane then mentioned that the gallery page at Ferris alerts visitors to current and upcoming exhibits. When asked by Scott, she explained that they occasionally have summer exhibits as well.
Scott tied in the gallery and the extended hours it has that Diane mentioned to Festival of the Arts. Leah inquired how Diane and Carrie set up for an exhibit; to which Diane responded that they sometimes have artwork delivered or sometimes have to go to the artist and pick up the artwork from there.
Scott and Sandy opened by discussing the Tailgate on Ice, as that was an event which happened during Ferris Hockey around the time that most were watching the Winter Olympics on NBC. After discussing the Ferris game against Michigan State, which led to a Ferris 4-1 victory, they proceeded to talk more about the Dr. Seuss exhibits and events on campus.
