The Newsroom

Carolina Week is produced on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Each week, student journalists are supervised by professors and graduate students who have professional journalism experience in order to produce award winning newscasts for the greater Triangle area.

The newsroom in Carroll Hall is where students write and edit their stories. It’s home to state-of-the-art technology. Networked iMac computer terminals and the latest professional newswriting and producing software allow student reporters and producers to prepare the weekly TV and radio broadcasts. The software package includes Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro editing software for video reports and Adobe Audition editing software for Carolina Connection radio reports.

Our professional television studio houses state-of-the-art technology to provide students with realistic anchor and crew experiences. Three floor cameras with teleprompters, a soundproof audio booth, studio lighting and a lighting board duplicates the equipment students will use in their professional careers.

The control room sends Carolina Week to the air waves. It features a 32-panel audio mixing console, a Broadcast Pix switcher with Harris Inscriber graphics package, a Precis Video Play-to-Air Server.
