the Broadcasting Club @ UWM

inside the TV control roomThe Broadcast Club at UWM provides students with practical experience in studio television production, program producing, and radio sports play-by-play broadcasting.

Members receive training in all aspects of television studio production, including camera operation, technical directing, and directing. They then use a professional television studio each week to produce half-hour programs that air on the club’s new campus television station, PawsTV3.

Club members also produce live play-by-play Internet radio coverage of various UWM sporting events, including women’s home basketball and volleyball games.  Membership is open to all UWM students, regardless of major.

In this week's Student Showcase, the Broadcast Club@UWM talks to some student journalists who have made history by becoming the first students ever to win a national Edward R. Murrow award for journalistic excellence.

  Panther Pause talks with author Bridget Birdsall about her new book "Double Exposure," the story of an intersex teen athlete that brings to light complex gender issues, teenage insecurities, and overcoming obstacles.
