Clarion Broadcasting Membership Benefits
Students can learn what it's like to be a part of a radio show, podcast, or participate in video production.
There are opportunities to learn various aspects of online broadcasting, including technical and production aspects (such as how to use equipment, edit video, and audio, etc.) and journalistic concerns (legal requirements, how to write for broadcast, storyboarding, etc.). This allows students to practice the skills they learn from Clarion Broadcasting in the classroom.
In addition, Clarion Broadcasting provides an online public forum that encourages free expression and respectful dialogue and debate within the campus community, as well as promotes inclusivity that values diverse viewpoints and perspectives.
Clarion Broadcasting also provides stipends to participants that range from $200 to $500 a semester depending upon their role with the station, although some roles are voluntary.
