Tired of Football? Tune in Dr. Lloyd ‘Jeff’ Dumas
On Nickelodeon Channel Opposite Super Bowl XXXVI


It’s deep into the second half of Super Bowl XXXVI this coming Sunday. Maybe it’s a one-sided contest and your interest is beginning to wane. Or you’re simply tired of another drawn-out season of professional football and wish it would end. Or perhaps you wish you had consumed less of your sister-in-law’s bean dip.

Whatever the reason, you’re ready for a change. Pick up that TV remote and tune in Nickelodeon, the cable television channel for kids. Dr. Lloyd “Jeff” Dumas, a professor of political economy in UTD’s School of Social Sciences, is scheduled to appear on “Nick News,” a newsmagazine show for kids hosted by journalist Linda Ellerbee. In a taped segment, Dumas will discuss terrorism, including the difference between terrorists and freedom fighters, in language understandable to eight- to 13-year-olds, the show’s target audience.

The program will be aired at 7:30 p.m. Central Time this Sunday,

Feb. 3. Check local listing for the channel for Nickelodeon in your area.
