It is hard to contain the excitement about the National Student Media Convention!  We have brought in so much that stations have been asking us for registration materials long before we were able to make them available.  Working with our friends at ACP and CMA we are able to announce that registration is now open for the exciting convention!

At the moment, registration is limited to old school media via our registration booklet.  In a few days, you will be able to register on-line with a credit card.   Stay tuned!

College TV Highlighted in Campus Explorer

Campus Explorer offers a short item on campus college TV stations in this article.  Here are some quotes from the article.

“Some stations, such as Wheaton College’s WETN, started out as radio stations. As televisions became more commonplace in American households, eventually it began broadcasting video as well. Other schools have separate television and radio stations.”

“Student video is also a great way to help you with your classwork. As an underclassman, you can prepare for exams without leaving your dorm room. CTV airs review sessions for Columbia’s core classes once a semester. ”  How common is this practice?

“Best Schools for College Video.  Other schools that were rated to have strong college television stations and media programs include New York University, Pepperdine University, Ithaca College and the University of Southern California.”  The article does not reference its source for these “ratings”.

Campus TV and the Internet

Frequency TV posts all episodes of its hugely popular “Freq Out” variety show online. Ithaca College’s ICTV 16 records some of its content as podcasts. Wheaton College students can stream WETN programming live online. You may also be able to find clips of shows posted on YouTube.”

Not much of a story and it appears to be poorly researched, but it isn’t often we see any sort of ‘news’ about college TV.

With that in mind, CBI wants to remind you that we are hear for you and we can help you and your station through mutual collaboration.  CBI has a number of sessions dedicated to student video outlets at the Fall National Student Media Convention in Orlando (click the events tab above for more information), including topics that cover basics (what are those numbers in my camera, mic applications, a roundtable on youtube channels, automation, Final Cut Pro and more!).  We also have an email list to discuss issues specific to TV/video outlets.   To join the CBI-TV E-Mail List, send an e-mail to listserv@listserv.syr.edu. In the body of the message, type “Subscribe CBI-TV” (with out the quotes).

College Station Operational Document Resource Updated!

CBI maintains a resource page for college stations that includes manuals, operational policies and helpful documents at https://www.askcbi.org/?page_id=46 .   The intent of the page is to offer stations with links to documents that might help in forming or reforming documents.  None of the links are intended to suggest the best, rather to offer a variety resources for stations to look at when updating or forming new documents.

Recently, many of the links on the page had become dated.  Most of the deadlinks have been fixed, but some remain.  We have reached out to the stations with dead links and asked them to provide us with current information.

If you are willing to share and add to this resource, please send an email to ExDir@askcbi.org with a link to your station documents or include them in an attachment!
