Many exciting changes are underway for Four Peaks TV, created in conjunction with the MCDM. Dubbed a monthly current affairs show, Four Peaks TV connects to creatives, activists, entreprenuers, and storytellers from the Pacific Northwest. This year brings more student involvement, a change in format, and an exciting new partnership with Northwest Cable News.

This season’s first episode will premiere on Saturday, November 10th at 4 p.m. on NWCN. which is a sister station to Seattle’s KING 5. The show will be shown again no Sunday, November 11th at 5 p.m and is also featured on UWTV on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Previous episodes can also be found on their website.

The first episode will feature Josh Henderson of Skillet, a local food truck that turned into multiple Seattle restaurants famous for comfort food and bacon jam. In this episode, Four Peaks TV host Hanson Hosein will find out more about Henderson’s secret recipe for sucesss, including his effective use of social media.

Hosein is the director of the MCDM at the University of Washington, but in a previous life was a journalist for outlets including NBC News and MSNBC.com.

The show started as Media Space in 2010 and focused specifically on media and technology. In 2011, the show got a facelift with a new name (Four Peaks), and a broader focus on innovation in the Pacific Northwest and its effect on the world. This season brought more twists, with new featured segments, including one called Teach Hanson where each guest shows him how to do something, and expanding the MCDM’s program offerings to bring in more student involvement through a production studio class.

The second episode of the season will air Saturday, November 17 at 4 p.m. and Sunday, November 18 at 5 p.m., with the third episode the following Saturday and Sunday at the same times respectively.

You can connect with Four Peaks TV on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Communication Leadership Screen Summit

This June, we are hosting the third annual networking event to showcase the amazing work students have done and continue to do in the MCDM. The third annual MCDM Screen Summit will be held on Friday, June 14th, from 6PM – 8PM in South Lake Union.

The bulk of the Screen Summit will be an opportunity for our students to present their work on the screen of their choice, be it smart phone, tablet, or laptop. The work they present could be a particular project they are especially proud of, or a culminating portfolio of their best work from their time in the Communication Leadership program. The focus will be on mingling and networking with alumni, faculty, and community members, with each student presenter stationed at a table (think poster session with screens instead of posters).
