Student-Produced 'Business: Made in Montana' Program To Air

Feb. 07, 2012

MISSOULA –

Students in The University of Montana School of Journalism feature some of the state’s fastest growing businesses in the latest episode of “Business: Made in Montana.”

The television program premieres at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, on Montana PBS. This episode profiles a Flathead Valley business called Quadrocopter, which mixes technologies to bring surprising benefits to customers.

Students also profile a successful immigrant who founded the longest-running microbrewery in the state, Bayern Brewery in Missoula. The program also will introduce viewers to a talented tattoo artist in Missoula and a fourth-generation Montana couple who started the state’s only whiskey distillery in Bozeman.

This marks the 18th year for this Department of Radio-Television student production, which has profiled more than 100 homegrown businesses over the years.
