Video: Student-Run Broadcast Premieres on PBS

Lafayette Lens, a student-run production created in partnership with WLVT Channel 39, the Lehigh Valley PBS affiliate, premiered this week on PBS.

Every aspect of the show was produced by students in the Industry, Strategy, and Policy class taught by Mark Crain, Simon Professor of Political Economy and chair of policy studies. The half-hour broadcast includes two 15-minute segments: “The Cyber Craze,” which examines how information and communication technologies affect who we are and how we live, and “The Shale Age,” which focuses on the impact of the energy revolution resulting from hydraulic fracturing.
