The IUSTV Entertainment Department offers students opportunities in the entertainment side of television through both in-studio and out in the field production experiences.
The entertainment department produces two shows throughout each semester:
The Bloomington Breakfast Club
The Bloomington Breakfast Club is IUSTV’s morning talk show hosted by Julianna Merry and Michael Skiles. TBBC highlights what makes Bloomington so unique.
The show has been filmed at various places around Bloomington like The Graduate Hotel, Oliver Winery, Oranger Theory, Rainbow Bakery, and has interviewed Bloomington business owners and students who are making a difference on campus and in the community.
The Bloomington Breakfast Club placed 1st in the Television Non-News/Sports Program category at the 2019 IASB College Broadcasting Competition Awards.
Not Too Late
Not Too Late was made to be a hodgepodge of multiple different late night shows all brought together within one show, drawing inspiration from The Eric Andre Show, Saturday Night Live, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Students have opportunities to be a part of the NTL Writers Team, writing jokes for the show, the Field Production Team, producing field segments & packages for each episode, and much more.
Past guests have included campus student organizations, IU professors, and Jesse Eisenberg! The show is filmed in front of a live studio audience in Studio 5 in the Radio & TV Building at IU.
Not Too Late placed 2nd in the Television Non-News/Sports Program category at the 2020 IASB College Broadcasting Competition Awards and received an Honorable Mention at the 2019-2020 Pinnacle College Media Awards in the Best Video Entertainment Program category.
