UT Extension Service Airs New TV Show

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — “At Home in Tennessee,” a new television show from the University of Tennessee Agricultural Extension Service, is set to debut at 6:30 p.m., Aug. 29, on WSJK Public Television.

Dr. LaRae Donnellan, extension professor and “At Home” host, said the program would air each fourth Sunday monthly and cover a variety of topics of interest to Tennesseans.
