Studio One

Studio One is a live television show produced by the University of North Dakota’s Television Center. The program, which debuted in the spring of 1987, is a one-hour broadcast similar to NBC’s Today or ABC’s Good Morning America. Students produce news, weather, sports and entertainment segments, and interview guests ranging from local people to national and international celebrities.

More than 4 million people can watch Studio One. The program is telecast live on Thursday afternoons during the fall and spring semesters on Grand Forks Cable Channel 3/97-1 and UND Cable Channel 98-1/116-1, Residence Life Cinema. It is repeated several times during the week in the following North Dakota cities: Bismarck, Dickinson, Fargo, Grand Forks, Jamestown, Minot, Oakes and Ray. Minnesota viewers can also tune in. In addition to East Grand Forks, Studio One is distributed to more than 80 communities in the Twin Cities region by the Metro Cable Network. Prairie Public Television, North Dakota’s Public Television Network, also broadcasts the program across North Dakota, eastern Minnesota and southern Manitoba, which includes the Winnipeg metro area. Outside the region, viewers in select communities in Colorado, Michigan, Virginia and Wisconsin can watch Studio One.

Studio One provides opportunities for students from the University of North Dakota to gain practical experience in professional business setting. Students deal with every facet of creating a live television show by working in teams. Four teams create and promote the show: News, Weather, Production and Marketing.
