In your first semester, you will complete a new-member training program in order to “learn the ropes” here at ZTV and our radio partner’s station, WZIP. In ZTV training you will learn camera operations, lighting, and editing.

The following semester, you’ll choose a show’s team to join. As part of a team, you’ll be exposed to and learn about writing, filming, editing, and producing media with the help of your producer and team members. Our organization values experiential learning along with peer mentorship in our effort to provide students with the skills they need to pursue further careers in the media industry.
