TV16 News
Harding University's television station launched its first broadcast on September 26, 1983, as TV12 on the White County Cable Television system in Searcy Arkansas.  Mike James and Lou Butterfield served as the faculty sponsors.  The initial programming schedule was 12 hours per week beginning with a live 20 minute newscast at 6:30 each weeknight.  Programming concluded at 8:50 with a short devotional thought presented on a rotating basis by a number of students.  Students also produced five original shows each week, ranging from 15 to 30 minutes each.  Initial news anchors were Doug Hurst, Jeanne Stewart, and John T. Thompson, all who graduated and were offered employment in the news business.  In 1989 the signal moved to Channel 19 on the cable system and in the mid-1990s the signal moved again to Channel 16 where it resides today.  In recent years we expanded our signal beyond the cable system to reach a world-wide audience through Internet streaming.  Our current broadcast schedule includes a weekday live newscast, "Live at Five", produced entirely by students each semester; Harding University's weekday chapel live from the Benson Auditorium; live and recorded Harding University and Harding Academy athletic events; and a number of original programs and vignettes produced by Harding students.  Numerous graduates from our program have gone on to land jobs in the industry, some of them award-winning leaders in the field.  Contact Dr. Dutch Hoggatt.
