Cesar Muedas, a resident of Brentwood and originally from Peru, will be featured on C-SPAN this Saturday in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the network's viewer call-in programs. Muedas was one of 25 winners nationwide of a short essay contest on the impact of C-SPAN's call-in programs, and his was the only winning essay from Tennessee.
"'We wanted to hear from viewers about why they watch or participate in call-ins on C-SPAN,' said Brian Lamb, CEO of C-SPAN. 'Viewers of all ages and walks of life wrote to us, including actresses, stand-up comics, parents and students. What's clear after reading the entries is the impact that call-ins have had on the network and in shaping the political debate.'"
Muedas’ essay appears online (here). A taped interview with Muedas will part of the broadcast on C-SPAN TV (channel 98 , Comcast-Nashville) this Saturday, October 8, at 4pm central time.
