Wilkes Television ScheduleThe Thomas P. Shelburne Telecommunications Center educates young media professionals and provides services to the local community by managing and programming educational-access cable channel 97 for Service Electric Cable, Wilkes-Barre, and one closed-circuit channel.

Shelburne is an 8000-square-foot, 14-room facility

That was dedicated in 1996, and named to honor Thomas P. Shelburne, a pioneer in the field of electronic media in northeastern Pennsylvania. Generous gifts from Mrs. Thomas Shelburne and other friends of Wilkes University made the center a reality.

Shelburne houses three television production studios

One master control center for program and cable operations and one state-of-the-art production control center for all studios.

The center also contains three editing suites with analog and digital capabilities, one audio recording suite, and industrial- and professional-grade field production equipment.

Our purpose:
  • To teach students the art and science of Television Production.
  • To train students in the use of State of the Art Television equipment.
