TALLAHASSEE, Fla
. – Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) Homecoming is arguably Tallahassee’s premiere week for entertainment, football and fun. Individuals can get highlights of Homecoming on FAMU-TV 20 by watching the 15th Annual Homecoming Special that will air Oct. 12 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 14 at 9:30 p.m.
   
Anchors for the show are journalism students Lenneia Batiste from Atlanta, Kristen Holloway from Atlanta, Kaci Jones from Port St. Lucie, Alexandria Collins from Tallahassee, Clarece Polke from Archer, and Donovan Long from Indianapolis.
     
The Homecoming TV show began back in 1996 under the leadership of Professor Kenneth Jones, a third-generation Rattler and broadcast sequence coordinator. 

In addition to the TV show, Jones said, “We’re doing three webcasts along with social media such as Facebook and Twitter.  Students from the broadcast journalism, graphic design and public relations sequences have worked collectively to televise this event.”    

According to Jones, individuals should be prepared to experience FAMU’s homecoming through the lens of some of the university’s top journalism students. Ever wonder what it takes to be a food vendor? FAMU’s TV-20 will be bringing you coverage from the field to the food.
     
The TV special will also have a homecoming wrap-up of the comedy, fashion, and the dorm step show. 

Individuals are encouraged to follow the reporters on Twitter at RattlerHCTV2011 and on Facebook at FAMU Homecoming TV Special.
