Gateline hosts Devon Graham '03, left, and Brian Ascher '03,
do what they do best -- poke fun at Colgate -- during the season
premiere of one of CUTV's more popular comedy shows. Gateline
is in its second semester.
Founded in 1981 by Barrett Lester '85, CUTV-13, Colgate's student-run
television station, was on the brink of dissolving in the spring of 2002.
Equipment failures, an inadequate budget and a lack of sufficient studio space
had caused the station to gradually fall apart. However, through the hard work
of a small, dedicated core staff and the support of administration and alumni,
funding was secured for a new, $30,000 project in the summer of 2002 to expand
and revitalize the studio. CUTV has exploded as the fastest growing student
activity on campus, with upwards of 100 members. Producing 15 student-run
shows, special events, live sports coverage and other programs provides
students the opportunity to learn, create and produce original television
programming with the goal of entertaining and educating its viewing audience,
both within and beyond Colgate.
