    Integrated Media’s Broadcasting program offers hands-on classes to train students to become proficient with industry standard tools and practice in the fields of broadcasting and audio production. Students also develop an understanding of the concepts behind the production of audio for other disciplines such as film and video, animation, music and Web-based multimedia. For students interested in music production, sound design for film, video games and Web applications, the Broadcasting program offers complete and comprehensive curriculum combining hands-on training and live broadcasting from fully equipped studios. The program includes instruction in live radio and television program preparation, commercial production, news, voice-overs, sportscasting, music programming, station, station management, audio recording, sound mixing and copyrighting.

    MHCC broadcasting facilities include an 18-seat Mac lab, two television studios and four production/control room studios for radio broadcasting which support our student-run college radio station 89.1-HD2 (KMHD-HD2). The student radio station affords students real life experience in running a radio station that broadcasts 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on the high definition secondary digital service of 89.1 KMHD. Software employed in running the station includes BSI Simian, VoxPro and ProTools HD1 and HD3 Systems.

    MHCC graduates have secured positions as radio program directors, on-air talent, recording engineers, assistant producers, operation managers, assistant producers and sound editors. There are also numerous internship opportunities at commercial radio and television stations in the Portland market where students can earn college credits, develop invaluable professional connections and expand their education on the job.
