CLEVELAND, Ohio - Feb. 4 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Meteorologist Susanne Horgan returns to NewsChannel 5's Good Morning Cleveland on Wednesday, February 6th. Following the birth of her first child Thomas in December, Susanne spent her maternity leave learning the ropes of motherhood away from the Power of 5 weather center.

"We really look forward to having Susanne back on the morning newscast," states Paul Kiska, co-anchor of Good Morning Cleveland. "Her sense of humor and quick wit really keep us on our toes during those early hours."

"I'll still be getting up at 2AM, but at least I'll be getting up with him," predicts Susanne.

"I was talking to Mark Johnson, and he said he's looking forward to the first big snow storm when Thomas has to be in the back of the weather center and Mark is babysitting," she jokes.

Susanne joined NewsChannel 5 as "Good Morning Cleveland" meteorologist in December 2005. Prior to that, she spent three years with WLWT Eyewitness News 5 in Cincinnati. Susanne has also worked in northern California and Indiana.

Susanne graduated from Indiana University and completed her broadcast meteorology certification from Mississippi University. She calls Indianapolis home and enjoys reading, running and spending time with family and friends, though being a new mom has changed some of that. Susanne, husband Patrick, and son Thomas reside in Cleveland's western suburbs.

New Internet College Comedy Series Begins in November

Author: KollegeTV
Dateline: Mon, 29 Oct 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOULDER, Colo. - Oct. 29 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- KollegeTV.com is a series about four college students trying to navigate the path to graduate between classes, parties and relationships. The new online comedy series about college life begins webcasting in November on www.kollegetv.com and will post new webisodes every week”



A R T I C L E:

BOULDER, Colo. - Oct. 29 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- KollegeTV.com is a series about four college students trying to navigate the path to graduate between classes, parties and relationships. The new online comedy series about college life begins webcasting in November on www.kollegetv.com and will post new webisodes every week.

The series is directed by Bill Allard, co-founder of the legendary comedy group, Duck's Breath Mystery Theatre who Newsweek called "an American Monty Python". Head writer, Merle Kessler, also a Duck's Breath alum, has penned numerous comedy books including "Ian Schoales Perfect World" and as a comedian appeared regularly on NPR's "All Things Considered" and ABC's "Nightline" as the satirical social critic "Ian Shoales." He currently writes the House of Blues Radio Hour for Dan Aykroyd.

"KollegeTV" is a cross between "Friends" and "Saturday Night Live," shot in the style of new webisode series like "PromQueen.TV," says Director Allard. "The issues for college students are the same as they have always been - relationships, parents, money, and grades. The only difference is the communication devices and the internet."

The series is produced by Colorado based film producer, Peter Garrity, and was shot in Boulder, Colorado. "We're reaching the college audience through its favorite medium, the internet," Garrity says. "Today's college students spend more time online than watching TV."

"KollegeTV" is one of a small but increasing number of professionally produced, original series on the Internet. "Its exciting to be on the cutting edge of creating a new medium," says actor Jason Griffith. "When you're doing things that no one else is, it's like being out there without a safety net: terrifying and thrilling at the same time."

"The small screen used to mean your TV, now it's an even smaller window on your laptop," says Garrity. "But we've still filled it with lots of production value. We hung our cast from a zip line during a mountain climbing scene, trashed an entire house for the 'morning after' episode, and converted a theatre to a film studio."

KollegeTV will feature 2-3 minute episodes, three times a week, with spin-off content filling in the off days. The first episode debuts November 5.

Through this medium "In the Cafe with Mocha" raises awareness, knowledge and pride in African-American literature and culture and its impact on our lives. By bringing the authors into the community, the program presents a unique opportunity for literary awareness and community outreach. Additionally, each venue will be unique, giving the viewer a glimpse of the nations many establishments and festivals that support literary efforts.

The host and co-producer of the show Mocha Ochoa is an independent literary event planner, who most recently organized the first ever NAACP Author Pavilion at their 98th Annual Convention - see highlights at www.theoraclegroup.net/videos/naacpshort.wmv.

She has also organized book events with Barnes & Noble, The National Book Festival, The National Press Club and the National Council of Negro Women.

In partnership with Amistad Press, Ms. Ochoa will be presenting four exciting events to the Washington DC area. The inaugural "Kick Off" event will include a live taping and book signing with Supermodel Alek Wek, where she will discuss and sign copies of her upcoming release "Alek: From Sudanese Refugee to International Supermodel" (ISBN 9780061243318). Alek Wek appears on Wednesday September 19th at 7:00 p.m. at Zanzibar on the Waterfront. The live taping will be followed by a book signing and meet and greet. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn about the Save Darfur Campaign.

From October to December the "In the Cafe with Mocha" line-up includes: Pulitzer Prize Award winner Edward P. Jones, Elena John and renowned author and entrepreneur Chris Gardner.

"All of the events promise to be intellectually stimulating and fabulously chic, while highlighting contemporary authors and their community supporters," says Ochoa. "In the Cafe with Mocha literary events are anything but boring!"
