Where does UMTV produce its programming?
UMTV is owned and operated by the School of Communication, and our studios are on the ground floor of the Frances L. Wolfson building. University of Miami students produce the majority of the programming.
Who is in charge?
UMTV is a joint production of students and faculty of the School of Communication. UMTV has an Executive Board made up of a dedicated set of producers, student leaders, faculty advisors, and the Director of Broadcast Operations. University of Miami students also make up UMTV's volunteer crew and on-air talent.
How do I start a new program?
Students who have a new programming idea must meet the following requirements:
- Complete at least one semester as a volunteer for UMTV
- Recruit a member of the Broadcast faculty to serve as advisor for the pilot and the series, if approved.
- Submit a written proposal explaining the concept of the program, the basic format and production elements as well as production requirements.
- Recruit staff personnel and studio/field crew. Confirm studio and technical support availability.
- Go before the UMTV Executive Board and present proposal.
- Once the proposal is approved, the student will produce a pilot program. If the pilot is approved by the Executive Board, the program will become part of the UMTV programming line up.
