PrintFriendlyEmail

On Monday, August 10, Nash Community College began airing television programming in the Town of Nashville via Suddenlink Channel 19. Content for the channel is supplied by the College’s new production facility, Studio 67. Currently, those tuning in can view bulletins, information pertaining to the Town of Nashville, as well as the College, and a three day weather forecast. “The College is excited about the option of airing on a local television channel and the opportunity NCC students will have to learn about broadcasting technology and video production,” stated the College’s Director of Instructional Media, Andrew Small. “We are enthusiastic about working with the Town of Nashville.”

Small said Studio 67 not only will maintain the channel but continually add programming. Viewers can expect to find Nashville Town Council meetings, meeting agendas, stories about the town, weekly news segments, and interviews with local officials and community members when turning to Suddenlink channel 19 on the dial. Additionally the College will provide original and educational programming, coverage of College events, promotions, and informative content.

The opportunity to air College content on a local channel came about earlier this year when the Town of Nashville reached out to NCC about a partnership to provide coverage of town events and information to residents, while also offering students pursuing broadcasting or production experience a real world learning opportunity via Suddenlink and the College’s production facility. Studio 67 also houses the College’s radio station, Big Bang Radio WNIA 89.1 FM, available on the dial, online and on Android and iPhone via apps available at the Google Play Store and iTunes.
