For students interested in "the radio world," Fordham's NPR-affiliated station, WFUV, is the perfect place to learn about the ins and outs of the business right from the basement of the Keating Hall.
As a sophomore, I trained and interned in the engineering department and now serve as a videographer, photographer, and editor at the station. If you're possibly interested in videography, audio engineering, or editing as either a career or a hobby, this is the perfect opportunity! You get hands-on experience, training amongst and working with the many unique musicians that come to perform in WFUV's own Studio A.
One of the notable recent sessions was with the band Phoenix. The excitement of all present, from the host to the band and all the people in between, created an amazing energy that could be felt throughout the studio before, during, and after the performance and interview.
After setting up lights and cameras, assigning positions, and coordinating angles, the video team was able to record the band's awesome performance. After all the audio remixing and video editing were completed in the following weeks, this final product emerged, showing what all the hard work (and excitement!) created! Check it out!
