Your hands-on broadcasting education includes a unique opportunity to use a high-definition (HD) television mobile truck that’s the most technically advanced system of its kind among Ontario colleges. This compact 35-foot television facility on wheels features state-of-the-art broadcast equipment, including the latest high-definition cameras, video production switcher, digital recording system, broadcast graphics software and editing facilities.

Humber has a strong reputation within the industry, with BRTV students contributing content to local stations. This includes producing Humber Hawks varsity game coverage for Rogers Television. BRTV students were also onsite in Collingwood, Ontario, working on the broadcast of an international ski-cross competition. BRTV students have worked with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment on American Hockey League (AHL) and National Lacrosse League (NLL) games, and with Universal Music on live concerts.
