The Communication division resides in Wolf Hall. Our two large video production studios are supported by a state-of-the-art Control Room, complete with computer-lighting systems for both studios, digital storage servers, program rundown and telepromter software, audio board, flat screen monitors and camera control consoles, graphics generation and video playback capability.
Adjacent to the control Room, a combination of MAC and PC editing stations meet stduent needs to produce digital video programming. Audio production facilities are integrated into Studio 8, enabling students to create and mix their own sound on nonlinear audio workstations.
The Division also operates two college radio stations (WVYC-FM and WVYC-AM). WVYC has been the voice of York College sine the 1970's with origins as a campus wide AM station and then on the FM Dial. Both stations are located on the second floor of the Iosue Student Union. Four production/broadcast control rooms allow students to produce recorded programming and complete off-air coursework. Staff at WVYC-FM handle airshifts, as well as hosting many different events both on and off campus. The goal of WVYC-FM is to train staff in various aspects of radio broadcasting to give them a crative outlet and also have fun.
Students at York College of Pennsylvania engage in wide range of media-production initiatives. Students maintain a constant window on the world through 24-hour Associated Press satellite news service. CNN Newsource, affiliate digital video news service, continues to feed our broadcast news courses with the same video feeds commercial news outlets receive daily.
