PROVIDENCE, R.I., — Any Rhode Island College (RIC) student interested in the ins-and-outs of video production is inclined to learn more about Anchor TV. This media center organization is meant to enhance one's skills within all aspects of media production such as pre-production, recording, editing, learning about equipment and promoting the finished project.
In the past, students have used this club as an outlet to promote podcasts, cars, music, or do reviews and projects to promote their future career. All Anchor TV projects are posted on their YouTube, Instagram and Facebook page. Anchor TV also has their own website that can be found at www.anchortv.org. The student-run television station can be watched on campus through channel 3.1 and is regularly accepting new submissions for shows.
The 2021-2022 Anchor TV team is overseen by General Manager Jake Douglas. Anchor TV has resumed in person staff meetings and meets every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in the President's Dining Hall. Interested students are welcomed to stop by and drop in any ideas they have. Any student looking to connect their creative mind to a career starting outlet is what Anchor TV seeks. Students that cannot attend the staff meetings can reach out with ideas to Anchor TV Production Manager Carlos Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anchor TV is an outlet where students can have a chance to work on projects that take them outside the campus atmosphere. In March of this year, former Student Community Government President David Blais was filmed by Anchor TV while interviewing former Mayor of Cranston Allan Fung. Douglas reports that the mission of Anchor TV is to "begin and achieve public outreach to the campus community at large; inform the student body, educate the student body and entertain the student body with content created for and generated by students."
As an organization the goals Anchor TV has for the 2021-2022 academic year includes a lot of recruitment, but on a qualitative versus quantitative basis. The organization also wants to create more of a student life atmosphere by working with other student organizations and the larger RIC population.
