Members of WSYR TV, Newschannel 9s staff are learning the latest in newsroom information systems at OCC. News and Production team members were on campus September 15 for training in how to use the newest version of the Associated Press’s Electronic News Production System which is referred to as ENPS within the broadcast industry. ENPS assists in the production of more on-air content than all competing products combined. It helps broadcast professionals manage program rundowns, assignments, contacts, messaging, news wires, archives and interconnected devices. Students enrolled in OCC’s Electronic Media Communications (EMC) program are learning on the same system Newschannel 9 is upgrading to.
“The EMC department is fortunate to have a strong partnership with NewsChannel 9. It was a great opportunity to have their staff and EMC faculty utilizing our facilities to continue their professional development. We are also proud that many of the Channel 9 people who attended the training earned their degrees here,” said EMC Department Chair Mike Kaminski.
“WSYR TV has had a great relationship with OCC and this professional workshop is one more example. Many of our employees in News, Production, Sales and Engineering are proud alums of OCC,” said News Director Jim Campagna. He is a 1978 alumnus of OCC and what was then called the Radio & TV program. WSYR TV’s General manager, Bill Evans, is a 1989 alumnus of OCC’s Business Administration program.
