云顶集团地区的大学 公共媒体

云顶集团地区的大学 is one of just a handful of community colleges in the nation to own public broadcasting stations. 云顶集团地区的大学 公共媒体 (WDCQ-TV and WUCX-FM 90.1) is an essential part of the educational mission of the college, providing informational and learning programs to 1.4 million viewers and listeners each year.

It all started on October 12, 1964, when WUCM-TV 19 (the station's call letters at the time) aired its first show, a children's program called "有什么新鲜事.“从那时起, 云顶集团地区的大学 公共媒体 has gone from black and white to full color and from analog to digital broadcasting. In 1987, it expanded its service into the Thumb on Channel 35.  And, on December 1, 1989, the College added its public radio station, WUCX fm - 90.1. 云顶集团地区的大学 公共媒体 continues to enhance the College's commitment to quality and educational services as it delivers quality PBS and NPR programming to the Great Lakes Bay Region, Flint and the Thumb.

云顶集团地区的大学 公共媒体 also plays a key role in 云顶集团地区的大学's electronic media program by providing students with hands-on broadcasting experience.
