University Television is an Educational Access Channel airing on Comcast Cable Channel 61 and U-Verse Channel 99.
Our goals are to provide interesting and informative programming that serves the public interest as well as providing our students with an opportunity to gain experience in television production.
University Television airs a variety of programming including nationally renowned speakers from the campus community as well as the Clinton School of Public Service Speakers Series.
Original programming is as varied as Home Fry-ed Movies where once a month host Ben Fry serves up an interesting perspective of some of the movies we show at the Home Fry-ed Diner to The Bowen Connection where faculty from the Bowen Law School discuss contemporary legal issues to Inside Art where we explore the work of local artists with host gallery director Brad Cushman.
University Television also records and presents campus concerts, theatrical performances, and guest interviews.
Students in the School of Mass Communication are encouraged to produce programming for University Television as part of their coursework as well as working directly with the channel in remote and studio productions. Current student productions include The Seventh Floor, a weekly student magazine show.
