Scholarships for UCM Students in Broadcasting Services
KMOS-TV and KTBG-FM (90.9 The Bridge) employ students in a variety of positions throughout the station in order to provide them with real-world experience in preparation for entry into the job market. Their work is essential to all aspects of the stations, from on-air switching and announcements to layout of this publication.
Three students were recognized in April for their work at the stations and for their excellence in academics.
Ryan Becker was been chosen as UCM’s first Student Employee of the Year for his enthusiasm, initiative, professionalism, leadership and ability to quickly learn new equipment and tasks while keeping up with his course work. Becker has been involved in all aspects of television production, and proudly represents UCM and the department of Broadcasting Services as he covers athletic events for Sportspageand interviews individuals for University Magazine. Our student producers are responsible for producing, writing and editing stories for KMOS-TV’s local programs as well as for staffing the production of our three membership drives. During the past year Becker and his fellow producers also worked to ensure thorough coverage during Mules and Jennies athletic event webcasts.
On April 12, 2012, the stations’ Community Advisory Board recognized two students for their exemplary work within Broadcasting Services. These students were awarded scholarships established in the names of two former employees instrumental in the operation of the university’s television and radio stations.
Eric Boedeker received the John E. Bradley Scholarship for his initiative in seeking and completing his projects for the local television programs, and for being an exceptional member of the production team.
Heather Cahow was selected as the second Fred Hunt Scholarship awardee. She works in the membership department for both stations, maintaining member files, answering members’ concerns and creating a positive experience for our audience members.
The University of Central Missouri Foundation provides two Public Broadcasting Scholarships for students volunteering at, or employed by, KMOS-TV or KTBG-FM. They are made by way of gifts from friends and colleagues in honor of two men who devoted much of their lives to enhancing our lives through public broadcasting.
About Fred Hunt
For twenty five years Fred supervised daily operations in the KMOS-TV Master Control before his death in 2008. He was a good boss and friend to the hundreds of students who worked in Operations and On-Air Promotions over the years. Fred worked with engineers to change the configuration of Master Control, all the while striving to give KMOS viewers and members the dependable television experience they deserve.
About John E. Bradley
After a long career in military broadcasting with the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service, Bradley was tapped by the university to act as general manager for the newly acquired KMOS-TV in 1978. Beginning in 1985, when the university's radio station (then KCMW-FM) was relocated to the Martin Building, he became responsible for what became the Office of Broadcasting Services. Bradley retired in 1986, whereupon this scholarship fund was established by the Community Advisory Board.
