The Show Studio One is a one-hour live television show produced at the University of North Dakota’s Television Center. The program, which debuted in the spring of 1987, is similar to NBC’s Today Show or ABC’s Good Morning America. Students produce news, weather, sports and entertainment segments. They also interview guests ranging from local people to national and international celebrities.

What is Underwriting?

Underwriters provide the �inancial support needed to produce the show. Underwriters receive a 30-second promotional spot on Studio One telecasts, Web casts, and podcasts. Underwriters are also listed on the Studio One Web site. Professionally produced video spots can be created if your organization does not have one. Along with providing support for the programming, underwriters also provide students with exceptional, hands-on experience.

What is a “Spot”?

A spot is a 30-second promotional video segment that highlights your department, program or organization. Every 30-second spot is produced under your direction. Television Center staff write, shoot and edit your spot. You approve your spot before it is telecast.

Underwriting Benefits New this semester: Graphic Ad on Web site promoting underwriters

For seasons 46&47 we will be posting a graphic promo before each story, highlighting our underwriters. According to our Google Analytic account, we have viewers from across the world watching our stories online. Now is your opportunity to let potential UND students know what your program or organization has to offer. Since this is a new promotion, we will be testing our formatting of the promo over the next two seasons. There may be an additional charge in the future for this promo.

It’s Yours

The 30-second video spot we produce for your department or organization is yours to keep. You may use the promo wherever and whenever you wish.

Social Media

Facebook, Twitter and You Tube are used by many organizations to stay connected with their target audience. Help make your page stand out by incorporating your advertisement into your social media applications.
