LISD, Heidbreder Bring Broadcasting Expertise to SHU

For the first time since the 1970s, Siena Heights University has a hybrid television-like station. LISD has sent a team lead by LISD instructor and SHU adjunct faculty member Kelly Heidbreder to cover Siena’s sports teams. Heidbreder is a very talented person, as she teaches, works as a meteorologist for WTOL-TV in Toledo, Ohio.


LISD TV is a local, multipurpose, digital resource in Lenawee County. LISD TV is available for students at LISD TECH Center classes to have hands-on broadcast learning experiences as the LISD TV crew, providing opportunities to gain working knowledge, use technology effectively, and demonstrate their ability to a large audience.


LISD TV is broadcast locally from LISD TECH Center in Adrian. The channel is delivered through Comcast and D&P Communications on channel 22. LISD TV broadcast programming is provided to Adrian, Madison, Tecumseh, Blissfield, Britton-Macon, Deerfield, Hudson and Morenci, and sometimes Clinton schools and homes. 


The university hired Heidbreder to show Siena students who are interested in the broadcasting field the ins and outs of broadcasting. LISD teaches students who want to be behind the camera, as well with things like showing students how to edit and make videos. The LISD and SHU are trying to make history and create a SHU TV station.
