NAPT Partners with RSU Public TV in Northeastern Oklahoma

For Immediate Release:

Lincoln, Neb.: Native American Public Telecommunications, Inc. (NAPT) is proud to announce a new partnership with RSU Public TV (KRSC) in Claremore, Okla. As the only full-powered Public Television station licensed to a public university in Oklahoma, RSU Public TV provides educational, cultural and general interest programming to an audience of 1.2 million viewers in northeastern Oklahoma and the Tulsa metropolitan area.

Dan Schiedel, general manager of Rogers State University Public Television, has been leading educational outreach efforts for the new documentary Will Rogers & American Politics. Narrated by award-winning journalist Bill Kurtis, the film explores the life and influential political persuasion of Oklahoman Will Rogers through some of America’s difficult times in the 1920s and 1930s and how his efforts on the political landscape still have a powerful effect on our political system today.

Schiedel commented, “Will Rogers had an amazing impact on American and Native culture. With our partnership with NAPT we will be able to expand the reach of this program to school children across

the nation.”

The educational materials being developed by RSU Public TV in conjunction with NAPT will offer curricula for language arts, social studies, art and media. Digital learning activities such as research skills and outlined technology demonstrations will engage students. More importantly, the educational materials will include political commentary, event comparisons and a time line of Will Roger’s life as structured around the historic events that took place.

Distributed by American Public Television and produced by RSU Public TV, Will Rogers & American Politics is currently available for purchase from NAPT’s Educational DVD site, The educational version includes public performance rights.
