WMJF-TV is one of only a few student-run, F.C.C.-licensed television stations in the nation. WMJF-produced programming is generally seen weekday evenings from 5 to 6 p.m., and nights from 9 p.m. to midnight. Students write, produce, star, shoot, edit, direct, and air all locally produced television shows. WMJF accepts program proposals from students who would like to produce their own show. Even if you don’t want to create your own show, we have a wide variety of television shows that are already in production.


XTSR is a student-run Internet radio station. Students manage, promote, program and DJ the station. DJ shifts typically run from 9 a.m. to midnight and include a wide range of music genres. The station has been broadcasting from the Towson University campus since 1971.
