The new agreement will allow Bethany College students a variety of new learning opportunities, from field trips to West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s state-of-the-art facilities, to internships, to classroom instruction and visits by West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s reporters and executives.
West Virginia Public Broadcasting reporter Keri Brown will be working out of an office in the Bethany House in a complex that also houses Bethany College’s 1100 watt FM educational radio station, WVBC.
“This arrangement adds an important new learning component and media to our communication curriculum and to the media opportunities for our students,” said Bethany College President G.T. “Buck” Smith. “Further, it is an opportunity for Bethany to serve the wider community for which we are particularly glad.”
