“On the Road to Cuba,” a half-hour documentary, will be broadcast by KSTP-TV, Channel 5, from 6:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 14.
The program, featuring reporter Jason Davis, will examine a variety of Minnesota connections to Cuba, including the University of St. Thomas baseball and faculty trip to the island earlier this year.
The program is being produced by Gail Brown, and the photographer was Jason Hanson. Davis, Brown and Hanson flew to Cuba with the St. Thomas group and spent part of the Jan. 22-29 week covering university and baseball activities, and part of the week traveling to other parts of the island.
It took a lot of planning and satellite technology, but the station was able to carry a live report immediately following the St. Thomas-Team Caribbean game in Havana on Jan. 26.
