Education Installation: Illinois Center for Broadcasting
Each campus operates on its own. A computer network connects all the facilities to transfer data.
When the State Street studios, all the equipment was specified with exact needs in mind, but with flexibility for whatever may be needed in the future. The studios are a bit small, so there's little room for unneeded equipment. This saves space of course, but there was also a desire to preserve the acoustics. With large windows already in place, stacks of racks were avoided to reduce unwanted audio reflections.
The original studio plan had T-shaped furniture. While this looked good on paper, it took up too much floor space. It was also realized that with a sports format coming in -- and the above-average-sized football players -- more talent space was needed. The T design was eliminated.
The show producer was also originally in the studio. As the studios saw more use and added additional hosts, the producer had to moved outside the studio.
The Chicago school graduates about 125 students each year through its one-year, nationally accredited program. Alumni now working in broadcasting often return as guest speakers as well, giving back some of their practical experience to the next broadcasters. Through its efforts, the Illinois and Ohio Centers for Broadcasting are educating the next generation of broadcasters.
