North Carolina Central University unveiled its new state-of-the-art television studio to the campus and wider community on April 23, 2019.
With $1.86 million in Title III funding, the new television studio will further enhance the training of NCCU students in the growing mass communications industry. The high-tech, high-touch facility is housed on the first floor of the Farrison-Newton Communications Building on campus.
“NCCU’s new television studio signals a shift in the way we will prepare our students who seek to become trained, job-ready, award-winning journalists,” said NCCU Chancellor Johnson O. Akinleye, Ph.D. “This studio reflects a significant investment in intensive and extensive training through our mass communication program that now provides our students with enhanced practical instruction in a world-class, high intensity, hands-on learning environment.”
The new television studio will provide extensive learning experiences in audio and visual technology, camera operation, lighting, directing and on-camera presenting.
