WPPB was recently awarded the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System High School Station of the Year for the second straight year. We are excited, humbled and honored by the recognition. We really are blessed here at ACTC to have a supportive administration and welcoming communities that allow us phenomenal opportunities to learn and grow.
This year we put a special emphasis on developing our sports department into a sports network of sorts, and our coverage included weekly football and boys and girls basketball games of the week and arena football, plus additional talk shows, coach’s shows and updates. We have just launched our video streaming to compliment all of the audio and that is off to a great start. We’ll continue to grow our sports and news coverage next year.
This summer, we’ll be adding two more production rooms, a music production studio, and a brand new on-air studio for WPPB, outfitted with cameras and lighting to facilitate visual radio. Plus, we’ll be updating our curriculum to be in line with the quickly changing media landscape. And we’re hoping to do some audio work with ACTC’s new Game Design department.
These are exciting times, but to maintain that excitement, there’s no time to rest on our laurels, or in this case, trophies.
