Fox Run Resident Rosev Lieberman Makes Her TV Guests Feel Comfortable On-Air with “Rosev’s Neighbors”
NOVI, MI (June 13, 2011) – The fast-paced world of television suits Rosev Lieberman just fine. Lieberman, a resident of Fox Run retirement community in Novi, hosts “Rosev’s Neighbors,” a 15-minute show that airs on the community’s closed circuit TV station. Her show recently began airing three times daily, Monday through Sunday, because it is so popular among its nearly 1,000 viewers.
“Rosev’s Neighbors” is taped every other week. It has told the stories of more than 70 Fox Run residents ever since it first aired three years ago. “I’ve always been interested in people and their stories,” Lieberman said. “ They’re so fascinating.
Lieberman, who once studied ballet and practiced acrobatics as a young girl, enjoys the chance to share stories of residents with her viewing audience. She prepares meticulously for each of her shows by talking with her guests on the phone, or in their apartment homes at Fox Run. She has an uncanny ability to make her guests feel comfortable on-air.
Guests on “Rosev’s Neighbors” have included resident Roland Barlow, who once worked in a quarry that produced iron ore that became steel cables for the Golden Gate Bridge. Another guest has been resident Evelyn Noveck, whose mother, Sophie, Sislin, was a close friend of Golda Meir.
Lieberman is a past recipient of the “Eight over 80” award for her work as co-chair of the National Council of Jewish Women’s Greater Detroit Section Casa Program that provided volunteers to the court-appointed special advocates for minor children cared for by guardians. She has lived at Fox Run for the past six years with her husband, Al.
Fox Run’s closed circuit TV station’s programming airs on channels 8 and 13. A rotating cast of 25 volunteers work the cameras and assist in other aspects of production. The TV station is operated under the auspices of Andrea Peragine, the community’s senior community resources manager, and Michael O’Hara, the station’s lead coordinator.
