New Television Series at KOCT

June 01, 2017

KOCT has a new television series called What’s Happening at Tri-City Medical Center.  Our first program celebrates June’s Men’s Health Month with a program featuring Dr. Jason Phillips, a Board Certified Urologist. It’s an informative program that discusses the need for men to have annual check-ups, treatments for prostate cancer and related topics.

Our first show is hosted by John Bonosoro and it features three 10-minute segments which makes sharing the links with friends and family members easy. They can watch any segment or the whole show on their smart phone, tablet or computer—all in Hi-Definition.

Tune in starting on Monday June 5th for the premiere of this new series. It will begin playing Monday through Friday on KOCT’s channel 18 Community Channel at 7am and 6 pm

Another great series of programs KOCT will premier starting next Monday are our annual High School Spectrums.  Each year KOCT teaches students from El Camino and Oceanside High School how to operate the cameras, switchers, Teleprompters and other studio equipment so they can produce their own Oceanside Spectrum television programs. 

Each student comes in the month before when we tape our regular Oceanside Spectrum program with Host Elaine Swan and a KOCT employee or college intern shows them how to operate the equipment.  The next month’s show features a high school host or hosts and guests from their high schools to talk about subjects such as the soon to be completed theatre at Oceanside High School.

These shows can be instrumental in the lives of these young students. I recall the story of one young lady from El Camino who came to the KOCT studios and saw all of the young, professional women who were then working at KOCT. She was so inspired that she changed her career choice, attended the prestigious Brooks Institute in Ventura and is working full-time in the communications field.

So check out these professional program produced by teenagers from our community about our two local high schools. The series begins on June 5th on channel 18 and airs M-F 8:00AM and 7:00PM .The high schools will rotate every other day with El Camino beginning on Monday and OHS beginning on Tuesday. They will switch the following week with Oceanside High School playing on M/W/F and El Camino High School playing on T/TH.
