WHO WE ARE:

About ATV

We are American University’s student run television station.

We welcome all AU students to participate at ATV, regardless of school or major, and absolutely no experience is required to join. We offer a wide variety of available roles with differing levels of commitment, so everyone can make their experience at ATV mean as much or as little as they like. And perhaps most importantly, working at ATV is lots of fun!

Our Station

ATV is the student-run television station at American University, located in northwest Washington, DC. We produce nearly a dozen original television programs ranging from coverage of campus and local news to talk shows on various topics to comedy and entertainment.

ATV is entirely a student-run organization, independent of the School of Communication. All of our programs are hosted, produced, edited, and managed by students, and students are also responsible for the management of the station, its studios, and its technical equipment. ATV’s offices, studio, control room, equipment, and broadcast control are all located on the second floor of the Mary Graydon Center in MGC 256, a location that we also share with WVAU and AWOL.

In addition to producing great programming, one of ATV’s core missions is to provide students with a hands-on environment to learn many different types of skills in a film/television production environment. To that end, ATV has a number of departments mirroring those at a traditional television station, such as Public Relations, Programming, Information Technology (IT), Operations, Productions, etc.

Students can create and produce their own show from scratch, or participate as crew members or on-air talent for existing shows. Many students who have been active in ATV have reported that the skills learned and experience gained at ATV opened them up to numerous internship and career opportunities.

 
 

Our Governance

ATV is a student-run media organization recognized and funded by the AU Student Media Board. ATV is advised by the staff of Student Activities and a staff advisor from SOC on organizational and technical issues. ATV retains complete editorial and programming independence for all of its productions, which are never subject to prior review by ATV’s advisors or any university officials.

ATV has pushed me to become better at all aspects of the filmmaking process while also providing incredible mentors and friends. It fosters an environment of learning that I haven't found anywhere else at AU.
