IUP-TV is a 24-hour access cable television station, operated by the Department of Communications Media in conjunction with student crews and production teams.

Welcome to IUP-TV

Since 1966, IUP’s television station has been providing students with valuable learning experiences and its audiences with entertaining and reliable programming. IUP-TV reaches up to 100,000 local Comcast customers in Pennsylvania, all while enhancing the learning experience of the involved IUP students. For members of the program, IUP-TV provides hands-on learning experiences where students can enhance their own education, creativity, and skills related to television productions. IUP-TV is an opportunity for students to share their stories, showcase their excellence, and celebrate their talents with the surrounding community.

IUP-TV is uniquely different than most college television stations because of its direct connection to the academic mission of the Department of Communications Media at IUP. IUP-TV supports the academic curriculum by providing students with a working learning laboratory that includes state-of-the-art production equipment and editing software, operated and managed by a highly skilled professional staff.

Mission Statement

“The mission of IUP-TV is to (1) provide students with a hands-on, real-world television production experience as part of the academic curriculum, (2) produce educational, informative, entertaining, and insightful media, responsive to the general needs of the IUP-TV viewing audience, (3) provide practical learning experiences in a professional environment for IUP students, and (4) dedicate ourselves to excellent, sound business practices appropriate to our academic environment.”

Get Involved!

IUP-TV is open to all students of IUP, not just those in the Communications Media Department. Involvement in television production can enhance skills that are desirable in many professional fields, including communications, management, business planning, promotions, public relations, and marketing. IUP-TV encourages all second-semester freshman and interested upper-class students to get involved with one of the many shows within our program.
