TigerTV is Trinity's 24/7 campus television station, operating within the Department of Communication. TigerTV is an "in-house internship" opportunity that provides important additions to graduates' resumes and portfolios, no matter what their career path.
Work at the station provides valuable hands-on experience in communication, broadcasting, public relations, business, marketing, management, accounting, art, digital art, and interactive multimedia storytelling. Students may get involved their first semester at Trinity.
In 2010, TigerTV unveiled its renovated digital HD facilities. The new, state-of-the art studios include broadcast quality high-definition video production and recording equipment and an enlarged production control facility. The studio supports up to five HD cameras and has a new 20-foot green-screen wall, as well as the latest DMX lighting systems. A satellite newsroom area includes two robotic HD cameras and a standard-definition interview area. A new satellite dish and arrangement with CNN allows students to access CNN news feeds for broadcast.
Whether it's writing, directing, camera work, technical work, or on-camera talent, TigerTV allows students a broad range of experiential opportunities. Our student-produced programs include "Newswave," a thirty-minute live broadcast news program; "Studio 21," a music and entertainment news program; and "The Not So Late Show," a talk and comedy program. San Antonio's Time Warner cable system carries TigerTV on cable channel 98.
