WTSB Studio B opens doors to students

In September of 2013, Friends of TSB board members unanimously voted to begin work on an adaptive production and broadcasting studio in the Life Skills Building. Through the generosity of the Wilson County Photography Guild and other other supporters,  WTSB Studio B is now equipped with software, adaptations and equipment that will enable students to operate a campus intranet broadcasting station for school sports, newscasts and other entertainment events.

You may know that TSB has an excellent music program. The chorus and jazz band have performed in many venues across the state. This wonderful facility will also allow our multi-talented students to produce CDs and DVDs for their enjoyment and to share their performances with family and friends.  Friends of TSB consulted with a professional to install sound absorption materials. A digital mixer, large screen computer and adaptive software have been purchased.

 

In July, 2014 the Cracker Barrel Foundation made a most generous donation

to help fund the new “WTSB Studio B" with additional equipment, giving hands-on opportunities in learning music production and broadcasting skills in an adaptive setting. Friends of TSB is very grateful for their generosity which will help complete the funding of WTSB Studio B!

 

A plaque was recently placed in the studio to honor the distinctive style and inspiration of Nashville recording legend, and TSB alumnus Hargus “Pig” Robbins‪.

New carpet, cork covered walls and special curtains help to absorb sound in the room.
