The last episode of the Think TV show will air this Friday. And that, of course, means no more Art&Seek segments of Think. KERA management announced the show’s cancellation and the elimination of six positions at the station this morning, citing uncertainties about the economy and federal funding. (Read KERA’s statement here.)
Since 2007, Krys Boyd has hosted Think TV, a spin-off of her popular radio interview show which you can, of course, still hear on KERA FM Monday through Thursday.
About two years ago, Art&Seek was invited to participate in the TV show. Jerome Weeks made the jump to television and brought weekly interviews with folks making arts news in North Texas. The Art&Seek weekend calendar, voiced by Nilufer Arsala, also aired during the show.
We at Art&Seek will miss our weekly close-up on TV. We especially will miss our colleagues leaving the station. Jerome and Stephen Becker, Nilufer and our calendar editors Gila Espinoza and Therese Powell, will continue to bring North Texas arts news, interviews, event information and feature stories to KERA FM, and right here, to ArtandSeek.org. Thanks for joining us.
