A new episode of the J-School student-produced series “Business: Made in Montana” will premiere on Thursday, May 18 at 8:30 p.m. on Montana PBS.

The series profiles companies that create products in Big Sky Country and do business around the state, the country and the world.

The upcoming episode features Meissenburg Designs in Bigfork, Legend Soccer in Whitefish, Caravan Skis in Bozeman, Howard Hill Archery in Hamilton and Everlog Systems in Missoula.

"Students research, produce, photograph, write and edit four to six minute stories about businesses that actually create a product here in the state and sell that product around the country and the world," said J-School professor, Ray Ekness.

Airdates for this episode are also scheduled for Wednesday, May 20 at 1 a.m. and Sunday, May 31 at 10:30 a.m.

"Business: Made in Montana" is made possible with support from the Greater Montana Foundation (GMF). Founded by pioneer broadcaster Ed Craney in 1958, the GMF provides grants to organizations endeavoring to improve the quality of communication via electronic media.
