Posted: Thursday, 21 April 2011

DOTHAN—Troy University’s cable channel, TROY TrojanVision, is now available to more viewers in the Wiregrass thanks to a new partnership with Time Warner Cable.

Time Warner customers can watch TROY TrojanVision on channel 310 in Clayhatchee, Daleville, Dothan, Enterprise, Ft. Rucker, Level Plains, Malvern, Midland City, Napier Field, New Brockton, Newton, Pinckard, Rehobeth and Taylor.

The move will make TROY’s cable channel available to many viewers in Dothan and the surrounding area for the first time, said Buddy Johnson, director of TROY’s Broadcast and Digital Network.

“Troy University has been very interested in having a presence on cable in the Dothan market for many years,” Johnson said. “With a TROY campus in Dothan and many alumni and students in the surrounding area, we feel like the Wiregrass region is a perfect fit for TROY TrojanVision.”

TROY and Time Warner Cable formally announced the partnership during an event at the Dothan Campus on Wednesday.

"Time Warner Cable is pleased to partner with Troy University on this initiative," said Scott Pryzwansky, communications manager, Time Warner Cable. "We are thrilled to be able to bring TROY TrojanVision to our local communities."

TROY TrojanVision features a twice-daily live, student-produced newscast on Monday through Friday at 11:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

“Many TROY TrojanVision news personalities are from the Wiregrass, and now friends and family can see these students at work,” said Kyle Bozeman, TROY television manager. “And many Dothan area broadcasters got their start at TrojanVision News—area viewers can see their future newscasters as they get the experience they need to become professionals.”

The channel also provides coverage of many University events including sports, concerts, commencement ceremonies and speeches. Other regularly scheduled programs include “Trojan SportsNow!,” a weekly program highlighting Troy University athletics, and “Alabama Politics with Steve Flowers,” a weekly political interview program.

In addition to its locally produced content, TROY TrojanVision also offers a wide range of nationally produced arts and educational programs.

TROY TrojanVision currently reaches more than 200,000 viewers in 17 cities on six different cable operators in southeast Alabama and west Georgia.
