FAQs

What is UWW-TV?

Since its inception in 1980, UWW-TV (UW-Whitewater’s campus cable television station) has been an important part of the campus and community, providing news, sports and educational programming produced entirely by students.  UWW-TV is part of the campus cable line-up, located on channel 100.1, and is part of the Spectrum cable line-up in the city of Whitewater and outlying areas on digital channel 989, reaching over 100,000 households in southern and southeastern Wisconsin.  Students who major in Electronic Media and Broadcast/Print/Web Journalism are able to learn and engage in a great work experience by participating a number of  opportunities at UWW-TV, including news anchoring, investigative reporting, sports announcing, as well as television producing and directing.  Students who have a true passion for this field can also obtain employment as a UWW-TV student technician.  UWW-TV is the perfect venue for students who wish to compliment a quality education with a four-year experience in video production, news gathering and announcing.

How can I find out more about what’s on UWW-TV? Where can I find the UWW-TV and Classic Sports weekly television guides?

Television guides for each campus channel are sent via email by the beginning of the week to various department heads across campus and the community, including staff in University Housing; check with your complex director and assistant complex directors. You can be added to the mailing list by request. They can also be viewed at uwwtv.org under the Weekly Guide tab.
