Behind the scenes of a BRTV live streamed newscast
VIEW our latest newscast here:
It has been a very active semester for Bronc TV and Bronc Radio. Live newscasts in both Spanish and English continue to be the backbone of BRTV. This semester newscasts have covered a variety of topics, with reporters producing several well-researched, informative stories. An example is a story covering issues connected to UTPA shuttle buses. Other stories illustrate the fun, community spirit alive on the campus. Coverage of UTPA Spirit Week is a great example of the community-based stories produced this semester. The goal of all the stories is to allow both students and administration to have a voice in topics affecting our UTPA community. Bronc Radio has a variety of live programming 5 days a week.
