Programming and Production

WHCM broadcasts and streams original, live and pre-recorded in-house and syndicated programming in a free form  format.

WHCM produces multimedia content for broadcast and web distribution through studio facilities at Harper college, community based field production and occasional collaborations. To become a producer with WHCM, applicants must be Harper students trained in studio production. Once trained, producers can host shows as DJ’s, collaborate on  production teams and undertake studio and field production using Harper studios and equipment.

To check out equipment, managers can go to the WHCM equipment lending library to reserve items for qualified producers.
