California University Television

California University Television (CUTV) is a Student television station serving California University of Pennsylvania and over 100,000 households in the Monongahela River Valley. CUTV, like its sister campus radio station WCAL-FM, is owned and operated by the Student Association (SAI) and broadcasts from the Media Suite of the Natali Student Center on Cal U's main campus.

In addition to Final Cut Pro digital editing suites, CUTV has a three-camera news, sports, and interview set, utilizing DVCPro digital video equipment. The station also has DV-Field cameras, a master control room and a mobile television truck, which is used by the station for production of Cal Vulcan sporting events.

CUTV produces programming throughout the school year. NewsCenter, CUTV's flagship program, broadcasts live news from the University and around the Mon Valley, as well as sports, entertainment and weather. NewsCenter airs live on Thursdays at 5:00 PM. CUTV Sports covers California University's sports teams, including Vulcan football, women's volleyball and men's and women's soccer in the fall, both men's and women's basketball and all three hockey teams in the winter, as well as baseball and softball in the spring.

CUTV has won awards for its programming, including "Station of the Year" by the National Association of College Broadcasters (NACB), "Best College TV News Broadcast" — Eastern Region by the Society of Professional Journalists and several Telly Awards for sports, entertainment and magazine programs.
