Not only are we on the radio here at WT, we also have our own television station, WTTV.
This is a channel that broadcasts across the campus, even into campus dorms. On normal days, the channel is providing things such as student produced content, PSAs, advertisements of student events, services and announcements, or showing pictures of WT events. Also, Monday through Thursday at 1 and 5 p.m. you can catch KWTS’s news briefs.
However, on Tuesdays at 7 p.m., you can watch WTTV News One’s weekly, half hour broadcast. They bring West Texas A&M University current campus, state-wide, national news and weather. The whole broadcast is put on by students at WT. It is part of the Television News and Reporting class in Mass Communication. Here is a link to their latest broadcast.
WTTV also has a crew (WTTV Live Crew) that provides online streaming for WT Basketball and Football on gobuffsgo.com. The video for football is also seen on the jumbo tron. The crew even help out with Freshman Convocation in the Fall.
Remember when I said that News One broadcasts to the university? Well, I lied. For the past two years, WTTV News One has participated in the Global News Relay and has broadcasted on an international level. This is a 24 hour news broadcast with universities all over the world contributing their time to the show.
Last year News One produced a two hour segment.
This year the theme was about global poverty, and with more schools participating, News One produced a 15 minute segment. You can catch them at 2:03:00.
If your WT organization or service has an announcement to put on WTTV, email the flyer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
But back to KWTS. What is your favorite show on the station?
