"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 our YouTube channels, such as WNCP TV On Demand.
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 academic credit, employment, or on a volunteer basis, under the supervision of the broadcast faculty and staff.
UNCP students have been producing a live, weekly newscast such as Carolina News Today for more than 30 years. UNCP (formerly Pembroke State University) was the first college in the state to do so. Professor Terence Dollard has produced his interview program Comic Culture with students in our TV studio since 2012, and it can be seen Sunday nights on The NC Channel operated by UNC-TV, or online at pbs.org
Other programming produced over the years includes The Black & Gold Report (with Athletic Communications), Picture of Health (Southeastern Regional Medical Center), and Superintendent’s Office (Public Schools of Robeson County). Students can also work on the live webcasts of home athletic events produced by the “UNCP Sports Network.”
