Want to be on live television? On Thursday, October 3, Boston’s Fox 25 Morning News will broadcast live (6 – 10 a.m.) from Holy Cross for the station’s first-ever College Tour. The broadcast will take place in the Hogan Courtyard. (Rain location: Hogan first floor lobby.) The Holy Cross visit is the first of this new series:  every Thursday through November 7, Fox 25 will visit a different New England college campus.

Holy Cross faculty, staff and students will highlight the academic, spiritual, and social aspects of life on the Hill.  Fox 25 reporter Brett Connolly was on campus earlier this week to capture some aspects of student life,  including talking to seniors about their study abroad experience; learning about Student Programs for Urban Development (SPUD), the largest student organization on campus, involving approximately 700 students who volunteer in the Worcester community; listening as Orientation Leaders sang him the Class of 2017 song “Cruise”; and he was even allowed to play in a Wheeler stickball game.

Join us on October 3, when the most popular “commentator” on the Fox 25 Morning News Doug “VB” Goudie and Fox 25 Morning News reporter Elizabeth “Lilly” Hopkins, set up shop on the “Hoval” and conduct live interviews with members of the College community, including  Margaret Freije, interim vice president for academic affairs and Dean of the College; Charles “Chick” Weiss, director of Grants and Corporate and Foundation Giving; Lynn Kremer, professor of theatre; and Heisman Trophy candidate Gordie Lockbaum ’88. Students will perform a scene from the fall production of “The London Merchant,” directed by Scott Malia, assistant professor of theatre; a Holy Cross chef will take part in a live cooking demonstration; there will be musical performances by the Holy Cross Band; and the Crusader mascot will be on hand!

Sponsors of the Fox 25 News College Tour—including Canobie Lake Park will give away tickets to their annual “Screemfest” to students who participate in a Holy Cross “myths and legends” contest, and Dunkin Donuts and Teddy’s Peanut Butter will provide free samples.

While this is the first time Fox 25 is doing a College Tour, they have produced “Zip Trips” in the past, which are similar in style. Every Friday in the summer the news team travels to a different town in New England and highlights local offerings:  restaurants, places, people, etc.  They have even Zip Tripped to Worcester.

Other colleges participating in future College Tours include Bentley, UMASS Amherst, and UMASS Lowell.

Fox 25 Morning News has more than 30,000 unique viewers throughout Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.

Hope to see you on October 3! Wear your Holy Cross purple!
