The new KEDT studio at Del Mar College’s Center for Economic Development will offer students many new resources when it opens in April.

The facility is brand new with state-of-the-art equipment. The new studio for radio and television will be used for KEDT’s shows but also used by DMC students who are studying the field of media. This will allow more visual along with hands-on training with the equipment that is used in many television and radio studios.

Del Mar students who are Radio and Television majors and Media majors are able to have an internship at the KEDT studio to get more of a hands-on experience. Talk with your adviser about internship opportunities once it opens in April.

“The new studio will be joint use for both KEDT and Del Mar students,” said Don Dunlap, president and general manager of KEDT. “The television studio allows outdoor taping so we can take equipment out and the radio studio has space to allow indoor/outdoor performances such as choirs and bands.”

Breaking into the radio and television field requires hands-on experience.

“Work hard, pay attention and practice because it is all individual once you have the tools to do the job and you have to develop what you already have. It’s fun and it’s worth it,” said Liz Laubach, a radio host for classic music.

Dunlap said the new facility will help KEDT accomplish its mission.

“KEDT is community owned and operated, providing non-commercial and educational programs that have valuable information,” Dunlap said.
