FAQs

How can UWW-TV benefit me?

In addition to partnering with the UWW-TV staff on programming concepts, many campus departments and organizations have worked with us in the past regarding video production needs.  As a local news source, UWW-TV covers an large number of campus and community events every year.  If you have (or know of) an event you would like covered (residence hall activities, student profile, organization event, etc.), contact UWW-TV by emailing uwwtv@uww.edu or calling our business office at 262-472-1332.

 

I am not a Communication major.  Can I still be involved with UWW-TV?

Of course.  You do not need to be a Communication or Journalism major in order to be involved.  Many students have gotten involved with our UWW-TV programs, live event productions and broadcast announcing.  You do not even need to be enrolled in a practicum (practical experience) course to participate.  For more information on opportunities to work behind the scenes, visit the GET INVOLVED tab of our web site, or contact Jim Mead, Director of UWW-TV, concerning these opportunities, at meadj@uww.edu or 262-472-5659.

For those interested in becoming a news or sports anchor, the UWW-TV staff holds open auditions typically the second week of every semester.  Look for the announcement as it gets posted campus-wide.  You can sign-up for an audition at the UWW-TV business office, 1208 Andersen Library.

 

How can I find out more about what’s on UWW-TV?

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 under the WEEKLY GUIDE tab of our web site.

 

Can I make a suggestion or request for a program or show idea that I would like to see on UWW-TV?

Absolutely YES! The UWW-TV staff makes every effort to serve the needs of the campus. If you have an idea for a show that you would like to see created, the first step is to contact Jim Mead, the Director of UWW-TV, at meadj@uww.edu or 262-472-5659.

 

What services are provided by UWW-TV?

The UWW-TV staff produces programming strictly for channels 100.1 and 101.1. The choice of what events are covered and when falls under the UWW-TV Student Executive Staff, under advisement of the Director of UWW-TV and UWW-TV Program Director.

There are a number of other services on campus dedicated to video production unrelated to UWW-TV television programming. These include University Marketing and Communications, CoBE, or Video One Media Services.
