EUTV – Evangel University Television
Evangel University Television is the campus cable television station, which broadcasts both campus and national events. EUTV seeks volunteers and trained students in television production classes to help produce its shows. EUTV is also a CNN Newsource affiliate and receives news feeds, sound bytes and pictures through this service. The studio is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, including 4K capable video cameras, nonlinear edit bays, computer graphics systems and professional lighting.
EUTV produces programming in the field such as football and basketball games using its mobile production trailer. This trailer acts as a production control room with four cameras. Students involved at EUTV gain valuable experience that employers are looking for. Students have many opportunities for hands-on training as they produce programming for the campus and the city of Springfield, MO. EUTV broadcasts 24 hours-a-day on campus and local cable channels, and through livestream.com. Each week, Communication students produce a live local newscast called Newswatch Today, and Evangel sports program called EUTV Sports Update. EUTV also produces other specials programs, such as football and basketball games, concerts and campus events. Dr. Cameron Pace is the faculty adviser.
“I am grateful for the chance Evangel has given me to produce a television show. I feel it wouldn’t have been possible at a state school until I had been in the program for two or three years.”
-Derick Smith, alumnus and former producer of EUTV’s Sports Update
