Professional Broadcast Training For Hofstra Students
At WRHU students polish their broadcasting / social media skills in multi-media studios equipped with industry standard technology. Students create a variety of content including: news, talk, public affairs, music, and sports. Students converge audio / radio play-by-play with video creating multi-platform (mobile / web / broadcast) live game content for Hofstra Division 1 athletic teams and the NBA G-League Long Island Nets. Students produce & distribute all NY Islanders live NHL games to ESPN Radio NYC, Sirius/XM, NHL.com, WRCN FM, and WRHU FM. Students produce and perform on-air roles for the New York Riptide (a professional box lacrosse team in the National Lacrosse League). Students report live from political rallies, breaking news events, and festivals. In-house pros mentor students one on one.
For over 60 years, many Hofstra students who participated at WRHU, WVHC, and/or WHCH have gone on to professional media careers. Here is a partial list of alumni accomplishments.
The National Association of Broadcasters, CMA, Society of Professional Journalists, Princeton Review, and other prestigious organizations have recognized the outstanding work of our staff past and present.
