You can catch NIU communication instructor Matthew Swan on TV this week.
Swan will appear at 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 24, on the Travel Channelâs TV show, “Mysteries at the Museum.â
The episode looks into the legend of “James Dean’s Evil Car,â and the showâs promo already prominently features Swan, who recently received this yearâs Excellence in Undergraduate Instruction Award.
âI knew a lot already about Dean’s career,â said Swan, adding that his interview was filmed last December at the Historic Auto Attractions museum in Roscoe.
âThe showâs producers sent me a lot of material about the Porsche and the weird scary stuff that happened with the wreckage after the Deanâs famous fatal accident,â he added.
So was the Porsche really evil? Well, Swan says, youâll have to tune in to find out.
