MUB’s “unique selling proposition” was its requirement that broadcasting students actually broadcast, whether that meant riding the board during a football game, taping a weekly entertainment show, or publicly documenting the tumult in the campus outside.
Ray Smith, ’70
Miami University has a long and proud tradition of student involvement in both radio and television productions. This exhibit will celebrate five decades of students in broadcasting, including shows such as:
- Studio 14, a television variety show produced in the late 60s and early 70s
- Passing Reality, a 2002 television series satirizing reality tv and Miami life
- Newspoint, a twice-nightly radio and television news broadcast
- Mama Jazz, the perennially popular jazz radio show hosted by Phyllis Campbell for over 30 years, produced with the help of many students
- MacMillan to Miami, a 2009 show about an international student settling into life in Oxford and at Miami
- Oxford Week in Review, catching you up with the most important local news of the week
and many more! Many of these productions can be found online in the WMUB Archives.
