Broadcasting - Television Production


NOTE: Intake is currently not available as we update the program for September 2018. Please check back periodically for updates.

Broadcasting-Television Production

It is high energy, demanding, and creative. If you are interested in ‘lights, camera, action’… if you have script ideas that are just waiting to be produced… or if you have a passion for ‘getting the story and the facts’, then take a closer look at a career in Broadcasting. You must be creative, motivated, a good communicator, resourceful, a team player, have technical and production interest and a sense of humour.

You will train for entry level positions as studio and location camera operators, video editors, news reporters and announcers, script writers, production assistants, television technical operations personnel or for related careers in television sales, marketing & promotion, advertising or corporate communication.

Join a winning team… set yourself on a path to a successful career in Television broadcasting and production. Come and study with us in our exciting, fully digital facilities as part of CAMP (Center of Applied Media Production)!

Why take Broadcasting Television Production
in Thunder Bay

  1. No portfolio required for entry in the Program. We teach you how to put a portfolio together to help you get a job in the industry.

CAMP Internet Radio Station

In 2013 CAMP (Centre for Applied Media Production) introduced its brand new internet radio station and it’s not just audio. We have installed three HD remote control cameras to capture all the excitement in the studio whether it’s sports talk, interviews with alternative bands or simply playing your playlist. The station is built into the curriculum and many of our students are working in the radio field.
