CFCF-12 PULSE NEWS BROADCASTS "LIVE"
FROM VANIER COLLEGE
August 28, 2001

As part of their ongoing "Pulse On The Move" series, CFCF 12's Pulse News broadcast their noon and evening shows directly from the campus of Vanier College. After an interesting piece on the history of Vanier College which included footage from a Vanier promotional film from 1970, the noon broadcast featured teacher Jock Mackay being interviewed by Pulse anchor Mutsumi Takahashi (a Vanier graduate herself, we might add) on the subject of Vanier's place in the Saint-Laurent community as well as the college's multi-ethnic nature. During the evening broadcast, viewers saw a segment with sportscaster Randy Tieman on the Physical Education department and Athletics program featuring Vanier's Athletics coordinator Linda MacPherson.

Note: There are links to two video clips from Pulse on Vanier at the bottom of this page. To view these videos, it is strongly suggested that you have a high-speed internet connection. We invite you now to view some pictures taken during the setup and the broadcast of the show.

Mutsumi interviewed Jock on Vanier's place in the Saint-Laurent community as well as on our multi-ethnic nature.

Jock MacKay is the current coordinator of Vanier's well-regarded Explorations program.

There's a link at the bottom of this page to a video clip with the interview.

Pulse weather reporter Rosa Vetrano (you guessed it, she's another Vanier graduate) delivers the day's forecast while Mutsumi prepares for the next segment.

Vanier Director General Michael Macchiagodena, who has been interviewed on several occasions by Mutsumi Takahashi, poses with her before the start of the broadcast.

Filming the show was originally supposed to be on the front lawn in front of the A Building; but due to poor weather, it was moved inside to the rotunda just outside the A250 choir room.

Jock and Mutsumi finalize their preparations for the upcoming interview just prior to the show going on-air.

We need to acknowledge the work of everyone on the staff from Pulse News including, of course, Mutsumi Takahashi.

Mutsumi proved to be not only a consummate professional, but also displayed a friendly and open nature, signing autographs and chatting with students well after the broadcast was finished.

We also wish to thank CFCF-12 News for choosing Vanier College as the site for this very special broadcast.
