About

The purpose of VTTV is to serve as a television station run for and by Virginia Tech students. We provide television programming unique to our community that would otherwise not be available. We provide an opportunity for members of the college community to learn all aspects of production and management related to the field of television and broadcast media.

VTTV began in the spring semester of 1988 as a class implemented by theCommunication Studies Department of Virginia Tech. The class was sponsored in cooperation with Communication Network Services (CNS), which provided equipment, installation and a channel on which to broadcast. After one semester, the class was not offered again. Students in the class felt the need to organize and approached Student Budget Board to request funds to buy more equipment and promote the station. The students in the class elected a general manager and management staff and the first general meeting was held in the fall semester of 1989. VTTV approached the Student Media Board in November 1990 and was accepted as a member of the board. In 1997, VTTV separated away from the University, in conjunction with the other student media organizations to form the Educational Media Company at Virginia Tech (EMCVT).
