OSBERT POTTER TO HOST TV NEWS SHOW

A local news analysis program debuts Sunday on WTJX, the public television station.
"Behind the Headlines" is anchored by Osbert Potter, former commissioner of Licensing and Consumer Affairs, and, before that, a senator.
The first segment, taped Wednesday afternoon at the station's studio, features Potter interviewing economists Dr. Simon B. Jones-Hendrickson and Dr. Richard Moore.
In the second half of the half-hour show, four V.I. media representatives talk about what the economists talked about.
The program will be a weekly, airing first at 6 p.m. Sunday, then repeating, probably at 8:30 Friday nights.
Potter said the format may change somewhat, depending on viewer response. He was already
second-guessing the number of media panelists Wednesday, worrying there wasn't enough time for everyone to talk.
Tonya Singh, public affairs officer for Licensing, is producing the program.
Next week's topic will be how the Legislature divides the spoils among
majority and minority senators. Potter has invited several former senators.
