Production Support

Volunteers are also required in the the station's operational areas for local production support. Telecommunications students as well as individuals with an interest in television are welcome to donate their time. Volunteer service is often considered in applications for employment, and this is a great way to get hands-on experience working with equipment and staff. Time commitment of 2-10 hours a week, Tuesdays, Fridays, Sundays, or as needed.
