The entire set was transferred from the WKTV studios in Deerfield to the Technology Center studios at Herkimer College during the summer of 2014.  Since then, it has been a slow reconstruction of the set in the Herkimer College TV studio. Assistant Professor of Communication Arts Douglas Flanagan says “It was a long process, and we really started from scratch.  We had to transport the set in pieces, and then reassemble it here in our studio.  We needed to pick and choose what to use, and what not to.  We’ve painted, assembled, constructed, and added new carpeting and new logos.  Even with the debut just days away, it is still a work in progress, and we expect to make additional modifications beyond the launch of our new set.” </p> <p>WKTV Vice President/General Manager Steve McMurray said, "We are happy to play a role in training the next generation of journalists and broadcasters. The news set served WKTV so well for many years. I'm excited it will live on for many more years at Herkimer.”</p> <p>Flanagan says the new set will bring a level of professionalism to Herkimer College TV studio productions that simply was not possible before. “We’ve tried to design the set as a semi-permanent installation that can be easily modified depending on the type of production.  So while you will see student produced news, you may also see the return of shows like “Play to the Camera” and the “HCTV Takeover” special, along with other student produced programming.  The idea is to have a consistent studio identity for the viewer which can still be easily modified to suit the purpose of different types of shows.”</p> <p>The “HCTV News” crew includes students enrolled in the advanced video production course as well as other Communication Arts students, and Flanagan serves as executive producer. He stresses, “This is a student powered production.  They write the script, they shoot and edit, they anchor, they do weather, work the graphics, they direct, they run the video switcher, server systems, and audio. It’s their show.”</p> <p>Viewers in the southern part of Herkimer County can tune into Time Warner Cable channel 97-3 or channel 99 if using a converter box.</p> Mon, 02 Mar 2015 00:00:00 -0500 http://www.herkimer.edu/explore/herkimer-news/v/1015/hctv-news-returns-with-a-new-studio-look Cogar Gallery Features Work of Juan Carlos Rios http://www.herkimer.edu/explore/herkimer-news/v/1016/cogar-gallery-features-work-of-juan-carlos-rios <p><strong>March 02, 2015</strong></p><p>Herkimer College’s Cogar Gallery will feature the work of photographer Juan Carlos Rios of Quito, Ecuador from Monday, March 2 through Wednesday, April 15.</p> <p>Originally from Medellin, Columbia, Rios started taking photos at the age of nine with his father in the gardens of the city.

This time it was different however as both fought for a chance to be regional champs Sunday (3/1) on Putt Moore Court at Finger Lakes Community College. Helping the Generals end the Hawks season again was sophomore Jamell Johnson (Rochester, NY), to the tune of 23 points, cruising to their third consecutive Region III Championship with a 74-67 victory.</p> <p>Johnson set the tone early for the Generals (29-3, 17-1), scoring the team’s first six points. It gave Herkimer a six point lead (6-0) in the first two minutes, but Mohawk Valley quickly tied it, then took the lead 7-6, counter punching the Generals to the tune of four lead changes until a 11-0 run by Herkimer in the span of two minutes took control of the game.</p> <p>Leading the run was Daniel Owens (Albany, NY) and Johnson. Both guards connected on three three-point baskets, two by Owens and one by Johnson, for a nine point lead (22-13). Owens and Johnson finished with six of the Generals nine threes in the game, helping expand the Hawk defense throughout the contest.</p> <p>The timeout allowed Mohawk Valley to regroup, going on a mini 4-0 run to cut it to 22-19, but two offensive rebounds and a put back by freshman Felix Riascos (Poughkeepsie, NY) kept it at two possessions until a three pointer by Mohawk decreased the Herkimer lead to 24-22.</p> <p>It remained a one possession ball game until Owens, Carson Murphy (Mohawk, NY), Kainan McCarthy (Mohawk, NY), Riascos and Jallah Tarver (Schenectady, NY) provided the final offensive spark of the first half, in the final two minutes, building a six point lead (41-35) into intermission, highlighted by Tarver sinking a half-court shot before the buzzer. It was his lone three point basket of the game, finishing with seven points, three rebounds and two assists.</p> <p>Building on the momentum from the first half, the Generals owned the first five minutes of the second, building a 12-point lead after seven consecutive points by Dantre Langhorne (Greenport, NY) and a three pointer by Murphy pushed it to 53-41. Langhorne finished with nine points, eight rebounds and two assists. Murphy finished with seven points, seven rebounds and three blocks.</p> <p>The largest the lead got too was 13 (66-53) after Langhorne found Tarver for an ‘and one’ with 7:09 left in regulation, holding a double digit lead until the 5:58 mark. The Hawks managed to get within seven of a tie (66-59) with Ken Woodard (Bronx, NY) and Murphy both missing the front end of a 1-and-1, but Woodard redeemed himself blocking a potential fast break layup which would’ve put it at 66-61, putting the Hawks in a position to foul with 1:31 left afterwards.</p> <p>The Generals hit 6-of-8 free throws down the stretch from Johnson, Woodard, Murphy and Julio Galay (Bronx, NY) to capture the three-peat, winning 74-67.</p> <p>As previously mentioned, Johnson scored a game-high 23, just three points away from his season high. It helped him earn MVP of the Region III Tournament. Woodard also joined Johnson on the All-Tournament Team, finishing Sunday with six points, 11 rebounds, and three blocks.</p> <p>Up next for Herkimer is the NJCAA DIII National Tournament at Sullivan County Community College. Seedings for the tournament are to be announced Monday (3/2).

This allowed Finger Lakes to pressure the ball in the paint, resulting in 15 turnovers for the Generals.  </p> <p>In turn, a six point deficit (16-10) turned into a to a five point lead (21-16) for the Lakers on a 11-0 run, ending when sophomore Dantre Langhorne (Greenport, NY) tipped in a missed shot to stop the bleeding with just over five minutes left until intermission. Langhorne finished with six points, five rebounds and eight assists.</p> <p>Three-point baskets by Felix Riascos (Poughkeepsi, NY) and Jamell Johnson (Rochester, NY) kept the lead from reaching double digits with the momentum in favor of the home team, leading 33-27 at half. Riascos and Johnson combined for six of the Generals seven three pointers in the game, shooting over 50 percent from deep.</p> <p>The second half saw the Generals get within one possession of a tie numerous times. It took an offensive rebound and three point shot by Riascos to finally tie it at 45-45 with 10:22 left in regulation, helping the guard to six points in the contest. On the very next possession, Johnson hit his third three pointer to recapture the lead 48-45, helping Herkimer lead by one (50-49) with 7:09 left in regulation. Johnson finished with 14 points, two rebounds and two steals.</p> <p>Helping the Generals maintain the lead throughout was Jallah Tarver (Schenectady, NY). The sophomore scored 10 of the team’s final 15 points, ending with a team-high 15 on 6-of-7 from the charity stripe. His ability to get to the paint and finish was the difference in the game.</p> <p>Finger Lakes did manage to get it within one possession in the final 1:19, but Julio Galay (Bronx, NY) sank a couple free throws to put the game back at two possessions (62-57), and from there it was over.</p> <p>Up next for Herkimer is the Region III Championship game, which will still be hosted at Finger Lakes Community College. Their opponent is Mohawk Valley Community College, the #2 seed in the tournament. Last time these two played, Herkimer ended a 14-game win streak by the Hawks, causing the team to go 4-4 in their final eight regular season games.
