Mt. Scopus Radio Multimedia.    

Activities updated Dec 2010 jan 2011 (Hebrew)

          Mt. scopus studios were dedicated on Monday 18 october 1999 as a center for

          the electronic media studies.

          First as a radio station broadcasting on 106fm-educational frequency of kol Israel.

          But as computers & the internet developed rapidly the activity in the studios did

          not drag it’s heels  and is now  producing programs  intended for publishing via

          youtube, the internet, mainly scientific & research programs:

          “Activities including tv, the internet and etc which were not even dreamed of when

          we initiated  that program…creativity that meets the needs of today's  students.”

          – in Mr Norman Wain’s  words, summing up his visit in the studios on june 2010.

          The studios were established due to his initiative. Mr wain is a Cleveland Radio Operator and

          Jewish Community leader. His enthusiasm encouraged the Jewish Community in Cleveland, Ohio,

          to fund this innovative teaching project.
          The dedication took place with the participation of Norman and Nina Wain and a mission from the Jewish

          Community Federation of Cleveland.
          Dr. Sanford
 A. Berman of Cleveland, who visited the station with members of his family several days

          prior to the dedication, was a particularly generous contributor to the studios’ construction.

          A plaque dedicated to the memory of his wife, Bette Lippa Berman, and other family members

          was dedicated during the visit.

 

Broadcasting on 106fm (until 2011) the educational frequency of kol yisrael, was part of the staj-workshop. Today we record  programs mainly for listening on demand. Students have a completely free hand & choice in producing their musical programs, indi / rock and modern style. Also jazz, folk, ladino and brazilian music. We invite guests to take part in our work, musicians, artists & d j s.

We have two active studios, one of which is used as a classroom, plus editing rooms, listening & viewing booths and other facilities. 
A special committee supported and advised  the build of the studios in the beginning  composed of three professors from the Noah Mozes Department of Communication and Journalism - Prof. Hanna Adoni,  Prof. Gadi Wolfsfeld  and Prof. Tamar Liebes - and two professionals –  Motti Barakan director of the studios & a television produer/director, and Dan Kaner, a well known  Radio announcer
.
 


Giving the students practical, hands-on experience  is the main objective of the station also maintaining a link between the theoretical and applied studies.
