    NEWTON-ClearChannel Radio and Sussex County Community College have teamed up to create a new radio show, called "College Hill Perspectives." Sunday mornings on WSUS will be buzzing with news, events and people who help to make Sussex County an interesting and lively place to live and work. The newest member of the WSUS broadcasting family will be Dr. Brad Gottfried, President of Sussex County Community College. The show builds on Gottfried's successful television talk show that has run for the past two years on Channel 20, called "The View from College Hill." "The new radio show will be an opportunity for people to learn more about what's going in the county and at the college," stated Gottfried. "It's a chance for people to hear the behind-the-scenes stories and learn a little more than they would in a press release." The premiere show will air at 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 5, featuring the writer of "Remembering the Twin Towers" Dr. Angus Kress Gillespie. Gillespie rounds out the tragic tale with stories of the engineers, architects, politicians and contractors who ambitiously dreamt, designed and built the World Trade Center. Also featured on the premiere show will be Detective Sergeant Michael S. Richards and Freeholder Glen Vetrano who were instrumental in bringing the 9/11 memorial to Sussex County. Through an ambitious fundraising campaign these two men were able to collect the necessary funds to erect a memorial for the victims of the 9/11 tragedy. Richards and Vetrano will tell how they procured an actual beam from the World Trade Center, and how the community rallied around their dream to help make it a reality.
