Otterbein.tv gives students of any major the chance to explore the many areas of television and discover what appeals to them the most. Even those who have no previous television experience are invited to join Otterbein.tv and work with skilled student staff and professionals who give individualized attention and personal training on all equipment.

Students are introduced to the technical side of productions by serving as camera operators, editors, audio and video technicians, graphic designers, technical directors, and other television crew positions.

Serving as on-air talent enables students to grow as broadcast performers while building resume tapes. Auditions for talent are held each quarter and are open to all students. Talent positions include news and sports anchors, reporters, and announcers for various Otterbein University and Westerville City School sporting events.
