Through an MSP Television Production class, several students traveled to England to produce “Temple@The London Olympics.”
The production team covered press conferences, breaking stories and life in the city during the Olympic games. The students Skype-cast live reports to Philadelphia for broadcast on Temple Television (TUTV). One of the many pieces, “Sustainability and the London Olympics” won a student EMMY.
TUTV offers students a taste of what producing a television station is all about! TUTV is Temple University’s new digital cable station. Broadcasting to the city of Philadelphia on channel 50 on Comcast digital cable and channel 45 on Verizon FIOS, TUTV features programming from the School of Media and Communication (SMC) and other schools and colleges within the university, as well as community and professional broadcast partners.
