College Vision is a training tool for students to learn how to work in a broadcast facility, do switching, media operations, television automation, and more. College Vision runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can view College Vision from Saturday through Thursday on Click! channel 26, and on Fridays throughout all of Pierce County on Comcast channel 28.
Some of our locally produced programming includes shows including Work It! While You Still Can, The Kickback, This Ain't Karaoke, and high school football and basketball games recorded by Bates students using our remote truck. You can view a sample programming schedule.
When locally programming is not available, education programming from Annenberg Lerner airs.
