Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

BronxNet at Mercy College Bronx, N.Y. – October 5, 2012 – Today, BronxNet announced it will build a TV Studio at Mercy College in the East Bronx to provide technological access and media production training at the Hutch Metro Center. The BronxNet studio will be called BronxNet at Mercy College and is scheduled to open in the early spring of 2013. The Center is expected to bring an influx of jobs and industry.

The new space will include an express TV studio, which will provide for talk show and other types of productions, access to cameras and related equipment for field shoots and post-production systems to edit programs into creative finished programs. A range of production classes will be offered for Bronx residents along with the opportunity to create programs to air on BronxNet channels.

BronxNet at Mercy College answered a call for media generation facilities at various Bronx geographical locations as demonstrated in a needs assessment survey. The new center will be digitally interconnected with BronxNet's existing facility and network operations at Lehman College in the West Bronx.

"Our East Bronx facility is very necessary and timely as we celebrate 20 years of providing services and Broadcasting in the Bronx in 2013. This partnership between Mercy College and BronxNet will benefit the community, and we welcome the participation of Bronx residents, community leaders, organizations and students," says BronxNet Chairman Paul T. Gentile.

"We are pleased to partner with BronxNet to create BronxNet at Mercy College," said Mercy College Chief Operating Officer Joseph Schaefer. "The new center provides tremendous real-world learning opportunities for our students and is another way for the College to serve as an active member of the community."

"Students and residents of the East Bronx will now have an even more attainable way to learn media skills, produce programs, and share their vision on BronxNet's television channels. BronxNet at Mercy College will bring you new technological tools and training to allow you to keep your voice in the mix in this fast-moving digital age" states BronxNet Executive Director Michael Max Knobbe.
