The Society of Broadcasters

By Zaneta Kennedy

     Looking for a student activity group to join? Joining a club or organization on campus not only looks good on college applications for transfer students, but it can also give you necessary skills for the workforce as well. If you’re looking for a group to join, especially if you are a part of the Radio and Television program at Trident Tech, then consider the Society of Broadcasters.
     The Society of Broadcasters is a student activity group made up primarily of Radio and Television students, but is also open to membership for students enrolled in other areas of study at Trident Technical College. The Society of Broadcasters has three faculty advisors: Randy Grimes, Mark Bradley, and Glenn Seale. The meetings are held in the 950 building, room 244 of Main Campus during the designated student activity periods.
     The group’s agenda varies from discussing trends within the industry of broadcasting, to hosting guest speakers from within the industry, to planning community service projects. Some of the past guest speakers were Dave Flora, Production Manager for the South Carolina Stingrays, and Sean Houston, Voice of the Charleston Riverdogs.
     When asked about the prior events of the Society of Broadcasters, faculty advisor Randy Grimes said, “The Crisis Ministries service project in 2009 was a very successful project for the Society of Broadcasters.  For that project, we produced a short video that depicted the services provided by the Crisis Ministries.”
     The most current project that the group is planning is an outreach project with the Crisis Ministries for spring of 2013.
     For more information, contact any of the group’s faculty advisors or go to their Facebook page at!/pages/Society-of-Broadcasters-Trident-Technical-College/281417495219046
