UWW-TV will be televising both the undergraduate and graduate ceremonies live from Kachel Fieldhouse Saturday, May 18. The undergraduate ceremony begins at 10:00am, and the graduate ceremony begins at 4:00pm. You can watch both on UWW-TV (channel 100, campus; channel 96, city of Whitewater; channel 989, Charter digital) or view the stream at reslife.uww.edu/uwwtv.
At this time, there are no plans to re-air the ceremonies following the broadcast.
The UW-Whitewater Cable Television Operations staff has been working to bring back the three missing networks since Tuesday, April 9.
As of today, HBO2 (Channel 250) is back up and running as normal.
Travel Channel (Channel 221) and NFL (Channel 235) are back up temporarily, but, depending on your television, may require re-scanning on your part.
Most televisions may find Travel Channel on 221-1; NFL on 235-1. If you do not see the networks on these channels, contact ResNet at 472-3233 for further instructions.
The UW-Whitewater campus cable line-up has been without the service of these channels since Tuesday’s storm and power outage.
The channels as located on your guide are: Travel (221), NFL (235) and HBO2 (250).
The Television Operations crew is taking steps to repair these issues as soon as possible; we apologize for the inconvenience.
Sure, it’s becoming a habit, but sports broadcasters at UWW-TV are not complaining.
Every year except for one since 2006, UW-Whitewater has taken home the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association best in student sports play-by-play at the annual Student Seminar and Awards Presentation. That means six first place awards in the last seven years….as of Saturday, make that seven out of the last eight.
Seniors Sean Tehan and Andrew Mindham were the recipients this time, and Tehan was in Madison to receive the plaque and certificates. Ironically, Mindham needed to remain in Whitewater to broadcast the men’s first round NCAA playoff game that afternoon, which was going on at the same time.
The students entered a clip from the football game broadcast this past fall between UWW and UW-Oshkosh, which was chosen as the best student performance in the state out of the other UW system schools and technical colleges who submitted material for the same category.
Tehan, along with studio broadcast partner Daniel Marz and director Carrie Vigo also took home a runner-up certificate for their work on PEOMIOSFYRDS, a weekly sports talk show that UWW has been broadcasting since 2008.
In addition to the awards, students who attended the conference were introduced to a variety of local television and radio talent who offered professional advice; they included several UWW alumni who made the trek to Madison despite their busy schedules.
Overall, it was a great conference and the students learned a great deal.
CONGRATULATIONS to the winners!
