Dr. Alfred C. "Tuna" Snider produced Flashpoint, a TV show about issues and ideas made in partnership with the Lawrence Debate Union at UVM, since 1992. Tuna passed away in December of 2015, just shy of the 500th episode of Flashpoint. This video was produced in part to remember and honor Tuna's contributions to VCAM channel 15 in Burlington, VT, and in part to introduce a new award that VCAM, RETN, and other folks at The Media Factory have created in Tuna's name.

"The Tuna Award" will be awarded annually to a community member or organization that exemplifies Alfred C. Snider's spirit of public service and education around issues of free speech and media advocacy.

Produced by VCAM.
