The half hour, student-produced television newscast airs on the following schedule:
On-campus: WKU Cable Residence Life Channel 12 Tuesday and Thursday at 6 p.m.
Off-campus: WKYU-TV PBS Channel 24
NewsChannel 12 is a 30 minute broadcast of news and sports events involving Western Kentucky University and its students. The program involves nearly fifty students in the School of Journalism & Broadcasting. On-air talent audition each semester for anchor positions. Student anchors, producers, photographers and reporters combine their resources to produce the program. All on-air and behind-the-scenes personnel rotate schedules to work on NewsChannel 12. A faculty advisor oversees content and production. NewsChannel 12 affords students the chance to have their work 'shown' to viewers. This means the opportunity to build their resume via professional media experience. Hundreds of former WKU broadcast students now work in a variety of media outlets around the country and NewsChannel 12 enhances that tradition.
