TALLAHASSEE, FL - The 2019 edition of the Homecoming Special is set to debut on FAMU TV20 at 7p..m. on Friday November 15th, and Saturday, November 16h at 10p.m. The special is devoted to highlight the celebration of Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) 132 years of academic excellence and service. FAMU’s homecoming is described as an experience like no other and provides the community with a week of fun-filled activities and school pride.

This year marks the 22nd anniversary of the Annual Homecoming Special. This year’s anchors were broadcast journalism students Avery Jacobs, Ruelle Fludd, Tiffany Bui, Raiyana Malone, Vanessa Lawrence and Sherneka Streater. The special was produced by Vanessa Lawrence, Ruelle Fludd and recent School of Journalism & Graphic Communication graduate Stanley Danzey

“Seeing how excited everyone was to be involved and apply their knowledge to bring the Homecoming Special to life was my favorite part of this experience,” said Fludd.

The Homecoming Special will consist of recaps of the comedy show, coronation, the gospel concert, the housing step show and the Greek step show to name a few. In addition to airing on FAMU TV20 the Homecoming Special can also be found on SJGCMEDIA.com and under the TV20 tab on thefamuanonline.com.

“There was a lot of hard work and effort put into this special and I hope what we have created really resonates with our viewers and audience. They’re in for a treat,” said Lawrence.

The homecoming special debuted in 1997 under the tutelage of Kenneth Jones, a broadcast journalism professor who is also a second-generation Rattler.

“This is one of the strongest specials we’ve produced and probably the best mix of freshmen through seniors we’ve had in a long time,” said Jones.
