If we receive 400 pledges by 8 p.m. today, two different couples, Mark and Heather Murphy of Boulder Designs, and Tom and Janice Christman, will donate $5,000 worth of signage and landscaping to give STAR’s entrance a new look.

University of Southern California professor Dr. Sherman Jackson is both an American and a Muslim. That’s put him front and center on the debates over Islamic culture in the U.S. He’s been working to bridge the divides and provide answers he hopes both sides can use to understand each other better. On Tuesday evening, October 28, he brings that perspective to the University of Tennessee as a guest of the Religious Studies Department. He’ll speak on the concept of sharia and its interactions with U.S. laws and culture.

Happy Birthday, WUOT! Sixty-five years ago today, WUOT went on the air for the very first time. We’ve come a long way. WUOT now offers analog and digital signals, streams on the web, has TWO channels of 24/7 programming, and produces some amazing local programming, some of which has been recognized by prestigious organizations as the best in the country!
