Media Relations Broadcast Studio
Virginia Tech’s media relations team operates a fully equipped, professional video and radio broadcast studio in the Moss Arts Center to connect faculty and campus newsmakers with local, national, and international news media.
The on-campus television and radio studio can broadcast live HD audio and video to networks, news agencies, and affiliates interviewing Virginia Tech faculty, students, and staff. Other requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
The studio is operational 24/7 and the university does not charge for its use.
