MPTV Hosts Santa On December Shows
November 30, 2011
Milwaukee Public Television's annual five-night production, LETTERS TO SANTA, will air Monday, Dec. 19, through Friday, Dec. 23, at 5:30 p.m on MPTV-HD 10.1 and 36.2. The half-hour holiday program will feature children reading letters to Santa about the gifts they hope to see under the tree on Christmas.
A total of about 50 children had the opportunity to talk with Santa on the shows during November recording sessions. The programs also include features on a local hobby shop's toy trains, Christmas cakes and other goodies on display at a well-known local bakery, and similar topics.
The programs are produced entirely by students in MATC's Television and Video Production program. Executive producer is Morgan Kauphusman, a second year student from Dallas, TX, and the executive assistant is Ben Miller, a second year student from West Allis.
