WUSF Public Media Partners with WEDU and Bay News 9 to bring "Gulf Watch: One Year Later"
WHAT: WUSF Public Media and WEDU will air “GulfWatch: One Year Later,” on Thursday, July 14 at 8 p.m. This one-hour primetime special will examine the after effects the gulf oil spill had on our community and throughout the Gulf Coast, and what progress has been made in the restoration effort.
During the program, Florida’s leading scientists will discuss their continuing role in measuring the effects of the spill. You’ll learn how two Governors responded to the spill – both Governor Crist who was on the ground during the event, and now Governor Scott. Featured guests on the program include Dr. Seth McKee, Associate Professor of Governmental and Internal Affairs at the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, Darden Rice, Florida Program Director for the Gulf Restoration Network, David R. Mica, executive director of the Florida Petroleum Council and Dr. Steven A. Murawski, professor of Biological Oceanography and Downtown Progress-Peter Betzer Endowed Chair at the University of South Florida College of Marine Science in St. Petersburg.
