News, sports and entertainment once again will be featured each time UIWtv begins broadcasting live at 12:30 p.m. Sept. 10 on Channel 15 or at www.uiwtv.org
Last year, these three areas had separate broadcasts but are coming back together in the reformatted programming expected to air every two weeks, student managers said.
“There is a lot of excitement going around the Communication Arts Department and we can’t wait to share that with our campus,” said Entertainment Director Lissette Lewis, a communication arts major concentrating in production.
Pre-production process began Friday, Aug. 28, and continued with a makeup session Monday, Aug. 31, for anchors. Seventeen University of the Incarnate Word students – some of whom had anchored shows last year — auditioned at the TV studio in AD 290 Friday and four auditioned Monday. All majors are welcome.
“We had such a great turnout,” said News Director Valerie Lopez, a communication arts major concentrating in bilingual communication arts. “We had talented candidates. They all came in with professional attire and read well off the teleprompter. We are excited to kick off this semester.”
“It was really exciting to see the huge turnout that we had,” said Program Director Leonard Herbeck, a communication arts major concentrating in convergent media. “All of the candidates seemed to share our enthusiasm. We are really looking forward to see their contribution to UIWtv. With our broadcast evolving a lot this semester, it is vital to have a good team in place.”
