Thanks in part to work by WUSF TV, more than 70 public TV stations around the country will air an award-winning documentary that looks back at a 1950s and 60s legislative effort that targeted a then fledgling University of South Florida.

"The Committee," which was produced by faculty and students at the University of Central Florida, examines the Florida Legislature Investigation Committee -- also known as the Johns Committee, after its chairman, state senator and former governor Charley Johns.

The University of South Florida's lengthy investigation of the Dozier School for Boys is the subject of a national TV documentary debuting Friday night, June 3.

"Deadly Secrets: The Lost Children of Dozier" takes an in-depth look at the more than 100-year history of the Florida Reform School, decades of allegations of abuse, and the mysterious deaths of dozens of students.

WUSF Public Media

As part of the launch of the new half hour weekly program, University Beat on WUSF TV, University of South Florida System President Judy Genshaft sat down to talk with show host, veteran Tampa Bay journalist Denise White. 

The University of South Florida Board of Trustees voted today to put the video spectrum used by WUSF Television up for a public auction. That would mean the station could go off the air - or maybe not.
