About Us

The University of Akron’s School of Communication has housed ZTV on the third floor of Kolbe Hall since

Our station provides students with opportunities to collaborate with one another in a professional setting to create content that’s both informational and entertaining. This work allows members to develop and hone skills in shooting and editing video, lighting, writing, producing, and promoting their content.

ZTV is a co-curricular program in the School of Communications, and members can earn one credit per semester. Students with a 2.5 GPA of any major and experience level can join!

Today, about 70 students at ZTV work in teams to write, shoot, edit, produce, and promote award-winning media.
