Nature of Program
The nature of the Electronic Media program at Freed-Hardeman is two-fold:
First, it serves as a training ground for students interested in the field of broadcast communication. Campus and community radio station, WFHU, is a 10,500 watt non-commercial/educational FM broadcast station that provides “real world” experience for training students in: air-talent, studio production, sports play-by-play, broadcast news reporting, media management, and promotions & marketing.
FHn is the cable-access television station, which provides student training in: Production, editing, news gathering, camera operation and talent work.
Secondly, the two facilities offer the community access to programming not readily available through other media outlets. Both WFHU and FHn provide an alternative for listeners and viewers. WFHU, FM91 provides the Henderson community with local high school football and FHU basketball play-by-play coverage, live-remote broadcast from community events around town, local community service projects using broadcast skills, as well as severe weather coverage year-round. FHn provides weekly video produced programs such as: Sports Beat, Campus Beat, FHn Evening News, Daily FHU Chapel Service and FHn Spotlight.
Of course we want as many Electronic Media Majors as we can get. However, you do not have to be a media major to work at WFHU or FHn. We have several student directors and workers who major in other programs offered at FHU.
