In December 2010, Journalism Department Chair Ted Gup was interviewed by TV host Barry Kibrick in San Juan, Puerto Rico, for the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Between the Lines with Barry Kibrick. The special episode, in which Gup’s book A Secret Gift will be featured, was taped at La Fortaleza, the Governor’s residence, built in 1533. The upcoming episode will also include interviews with authors Esmeralda Santiago and Michael Palmer, among others.
Several Emerson alumni played a role in the production: Gary Grossman ’70, production; Sasha Grossman ’09, makeup; Stan Deutsch ’69, PBS station executive; Helene Seifer P’09, P’14, line producer.
