CLAREMORE —

Sterling said Yankovic’s affection for Tulsa and the Tulsa metro area is long-standing, and his movie is of particular relevance to RSU’s Public TV.
“We’re so grateful to Al for his support of RSU Public TV, and the time he took out of his busy schedule to include us,” she said.
 “As the smallest public television in the United States, we have a special place in our hearts for ‘UHF’ as the themes of being the ‘little guy’ in a big market and doing a lot with a little are ones with which we’re very familiar.
“And of course, just like Channel 62 (in the movie), we depend on our viewers and pledge drives to help us stay on the air,” she said. 
Saturday’s pledge drive will be from 7-9:30 p.m. on Channel 35 (Cox). RSU Public TV is the only full-powered public television station licensed to a public university in Oklahoma, one of six in the nation. 
The station provides educational, cultural and general interest programming to an audience of 1.3 million viewers in northeastern Oklahoma, and the Tulsa metropolitan area. RSU Public TV has earned numerous awards for its original productions, including three Heartland Emmys and 15 Tellys for excellence in local programming.
