Welcome

Thank you for visiting Student Media Showcase, the website that features the audio and video work of Electronic Media/Broadcasting majors in the Department of Communication at Appalachian State University.

The works range in style, but all are non-fiction. Features, documentary, news, commentary, Public Service Announcements and personal narratives are included here. All works are created in the production classes that are taught in the Department’s facilities located in Wey Hall. The site will be updated throughout each semester as content is produced by our students. Enjoy the programming!
