Pennsylvania State University's student-run, independent blog Onward State has reported that ABC's "Nightline" has plans to film a special segment on sexual assault at the university campus.

According to Onward State, the filming will center on a panel discussion with a focus on "understanding consensual sex and the nuances that surround the topic."

The blog said the network approached Penn State "after noticing its extensive efforts surrounding the issue of sexual assault. Specifically (Penn State) President Eric Barron’s sexual assault and harassment task force."

The panel discussion is set to be filmed on Feb. 10 at the university. An air date has yet to be announced.
