UNH HOSTS EPISODE TWO OF AMERICA EAST ON CAMPUS, WHICH PREMIERES TUESDAY ON NESN

DURHAM, N.H. – The second episode in the fifth season of America East On Campus, the conference's half hour magazine show that looks at what's happening around America East on the playing field, in the classroom and in the community, debuts on Tuesday on NESN at 6:30 p.m., directly preceding the Hartford-Vermont women's contest. The program will re-air on NESN Jan. 27 at 11 p.m. and debut on MASN on Jan. 29 at 1:30 a.m. and appears again at 1:30 p.m.

The episode, which is set at the University of New Hampshire and hosted by Eric Frede, will give fans the latest news and notes from around the men's and women's basketball circuit and take an in-depth look at some of the league's top programs. Boston University's first-year head coach Pat Chambers was mic'd up for his team's trip to Lundolm Gym earlier this month and Frede sat down with the Wildcats' Radar Onguetou, an All-Academic performer from Cameroon with aspirations beyond basketball, in the Best of U. segment. On the women's side, Frede looks at the conference's top two programs, Hartford and Vermont, and the possibility of both teams earning NCAA Tournament berths. The final segment will look back to October when 19 America East student-athletes got together at conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) meeting and discussed the value and sportsmanship.

America East On Campus is produced by Cod Rock Media of Kittery, Maine, which is owned by Frede and Dan Hannigan. Four original episodes will be produced and distributed during the 2010 season. NESN will debut all four episodes, while several re-airings will also air on the network and MASN, located in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area will also carry the show.

Episode 3 of America East On Campus premiers Feb. 14 at 3:30 p.m. on NESN, while the fourth and final episode debuts Feb. 27 at 4:30 p.m.
