Local Cable Show Features University’s New Programs
Les Young
Margie Jones

Time Warner Cable's news show, Local Edition, recently aired three spots featuring Cal Poly Pomona. The show is aired in conjunction with the cable company's local broadcast of CNN Headline News.


Two of the segments feature the university's launch of a new private label wine, Horsehill Vineyards. The inaugural vintage is now available for sale in the university's Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch. Horsehill Vineyards is a new collaborative project between the College of Agriculture and The Collins College of Hospitality Management.  


The first segment features Dr. Les Young, interim dean of the College of Agriculture. Young describes the process of taking historic Zinfandel cuttings and the long process of nurturing them into wine-ready grapes.


In the second segment, The Collins College's Dr. Margie F. Jones discusses the process of creating the Zinfandel rosé and learning opportunities for Cal Poly Pomona students.  Watch Young's interview in low bandwidth or mid bandwidth. Watch Jones' interview in low bandwidth or mid bandwidth.


In another five-minute segment, Glenn Shenker speaks about the university's newly launched free shuttle service to and from the Pomona North Metrolink station, 205 Santa Fe Street, Pomona. Shenker, interim director of Parking and Transportation Services, says the program is another example of the university's commitment to carbon neutrality. The Bronco Link shuttle will encourage the campus community to use public transportation and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The shuttles are also powered by compressed natural gas.
