Lake Land College to Host Broadcast Communications Open House

The Lake Land College Humanities and Communication Division is hosting a Broadcast Communications Open House on Friday, March 27 from 12-2 p.m. Guests interested in experiencing working with broadcast equipment firsthand are encouraged to stop by and enjoy free food.

The open house will follow Laker Visit Day, which is an event for potential students to tour campus and meet with faculty, staff and current students, and learn about the college’s 150 majors.

During the open house, guests are invited to broadcast LIVE on the college’s student-run FM radio station, WLKL 89.9 The Max Alternative; anchor a newscast in the TV studio; use equipment in the TV production control room and studio; record and listen to their own audio spot using professional audio equipment; operate state-of-the-art camera and video equipment and experiment with industry-standard digital editing software.

“Anyone with an interest this field is welcome to come, whether that be a high school student, a non-traditional student or a member of the public. Guests will be introduced to the studios, gain hands-on experience with broadcast equipment and software and will be introduced to the opportunities within the field,” Greg Powers, speech communication/broadcasting instructor, said.

Prospective students can major in Radio/TV Broadcasting and earn an associate degree or choose from three certificate programs.

“Lake Land is one of only a few places where you get started within the first two weeks gaining that sense of comfort behind a microphone and on screen,” Powers said.

Those interested in fulfilling general elective credits can enroll in department classes throughout the year. Opportunities within the curriculum include broadcasting live on WLKL 89.9 The Max Alternative, anchoring a newscast, using equipment in the TV production control room and studio, recording and listening to an audio spot using professional audio equipment, operating state-of-the-art camera and video equipment and experimenting with industry-standard digital editing software.
