Pittsburg State broadcasters receive regional recognition

Student broadcasters from Pittsburg State University received three awards recently at the 2013 South Central Regional Broadcasting Competition in Austin, Texas.

Students from Pittsburg State competed against students from several other states including Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas in a variety of broadcasting categories. The PSU students won first place in the audio magazine category, honorable mention in the audio commercial production category, and honorable mention in the open video production category.

“To win three awards in this competition for the first time at Pittsburg State says a lot about where we are as a program.” said assistant professor Trent Kling. “Our students understand that we are developing a tradition of excellence in the program and I believe that this taste of success at the regional level will provide motivation to continue to seek excellence in the field.”

Award winning students include Jake Faber, Jared Wetzel and the Fall 2012 Audio Production class for their production of “Fireside Chats,” a 30-minute audio magazine program. Stephen McTeer, Taylor Dawson, Zach Mitchell, Kyle Ilaria and the Fall 2013 Sports Broadcasting I class were honored for their production of “The Fall Classic at Arrowhead,” while Matt Circle and Marcus Nelson received accolades for their production of a 30-second radio commercial for Circle’s Pecans and Country Store.

Pitt State broadcasting professors are Troy Comeau, Leo Hudson and Kling.
