PHILADEPHIA, Oct. 1, 2020 — Temple University Television (TUTV), Temple University’s digital cable station, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month. Launched on Oct. 1, 2010 by Professor Paul Gluck, the station was started with a vision to create a TV broadcast studio to professionally develop college students looking to produce and edit media.
In May 2010, Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communication received a $1.2 million donation from the Kal and Lucille Rudman Foundation to produce TUTV in Temple’s Annenberg Hall. Since launching the cable station, TUTV has received dozens of collegiate awards from notable organizations such as the Mid-Atlantic Emmy® Chapter and College Broadcasters, Inc. Today, TUTV produces more than 30 shows, including the critically acclaimed Temple Update and Owl Sports Update news broadcasts.
“For 10 incredible years, it has been my privilege and pleasure to witness the talented, tenacious students who have created original, engaging content for TUTV as they have moved forward, earning their rightful place in the next generation of media professionals,” said TUTV’s General Manager Paul Gluck. “Working with our creative staff is pure bliss. None of what we have been able to accomplish would be possible without the fervent support of the Kal and Lucille Rudman Family Foundation. We are also most appreciative of those who are kind enough to watch our work on cable, online and social media.”
TUTV continues to provide students with top-tier access to filming and editing resources. To follow the station’s 10th anniversary celebration, visit TUTV’s social media pages.
