"WNCP-TV" is a program service of the Department of Mass Communication and a learning laboratory for the televisual arts. Television programs are produced by UNCP students and faculty in classes or as part of departmentally approved extracurricular productions. These talk shows, newscasts, sports, special event coverage and other videos can be seen on channel 6 on Spectrum Cable in Robeson County.
The Department of Mass Communication operates this community access channel for Spectrum. This includes playback of our own live and taped programming on the channel as well as scheduling shows submitted by Robeson County residents and resident-organizations.
Select programs produced under the WNCP-TV banner also air around the state on public channels such as Fayetteville Cumberland Educational Television. Comic Culture can be seen on the North Carolina Channel operated by UNC-TV, accessible to virtually all viewers in North Carolina and some border states. Carolina News Today, Academe Today, and The Author's Pen can also be seen on cable channel 2 on Spectrum Cable in Scotland County. The Black & Gold Report, produced with Athletic Media Relations, airs first on WFXB in the Florence/Myrtle Beach market.
These broadcast operations support, and are supported by, academic coursework in the Department of Mass Communication. In modeling "real world" production and programming scenarios, they provide relevant, hands-on experiences by which students can acquire and hone technical skills and put theory into practice. Student producers, production assistants, and programming clerks can earn progressively responsible positions in WNCP operations for credit, work-study, or on a volunteer basis, under the supervision of the broadcast faculty and staff.
