Students get professional training at SUNY Fredonia's student-run media operations:
Fredonia Radio Systems
Two radio stations are based at SUNY Fredonia: WCVF 88.9 FM, "The Voice," and WDVL 89.5, "The Inferno." WCVF reaches northern Chautauqua County, which consists of roughly 40,000 listeners. This station, managed by students, has a news show that broadcasts Monday through Friday from 6 to 6:30 p.m. Because WCVF is noncommercial, it has no specific format, so student disc jockeys can be more flexible in the music they play. WDVL is also student run and staffed; however, WDVL is a commercial station; a Top 40 format is followed. WCVF's evening newscast is simulcast on WDVL. At both stations, students are shown how to use the equipment properly and instructed on the operational guidelines. For more informationn, visit http://www.fredoniaradio.com
SUNY Fredonia's student-run weekly newspaper offers positions in journalism, advertising and graphic design.
At this student-run television station, students learn all aspects of how a TV station is run and aid in creation, programming and management. All students involved in the TV station have total 24/7 access. Students also produce and feature in their own films, which run daily from 6 to 10 p.m. The station's equipment is state-of-the-art with three Sony DV camcorders; two editing systems, an Avid and a Mac with a final cut pro and premier on them; three basic studio cameras; and, a standard control room.
