Correction: Ball State-Musicals Class story
Jun. 11, 2018
MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — In a story June 5 about a free online class on Hollywood musicals being offered by Ball State University and Turner Classic Movies, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Ball State professor Vanessa Ament would make on-air introductions for musicals on Tuesday and Thursdays during the month of June. Ament made those introductions only during the first week of June.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Ball State, TV network offer free online musicals class
