Many hours, many people and a lot of hard work helped KBVRTV to break away from the conventions of television broadcasting and increase their ratings.
Two of their programs were televised nationally: "Home for the Homeless”
and "That's Hilarious.” These shows were broadcast nationwide on NC-TV in New York.
Station Manager Kris Crouch said, “We're hoping to become an affiliate with NC-TV so we'll be a national network.”
During spring term. KBVR-TV had seven new shows created by students. They were "Body Tunes.” an aerobic show; "Traveling Tunes.” a rock video show; "Night life." a form of late night entertainment; "No Cover Charge.” a recognition of local bands; "Lifestyles of Sports." and a country video show.
"We try to encourage students to do anything they want." said Crouch. Therefore the station decided to let students create their own shows.
KBVR-TV also had three remotes a term, which were on-location broadcasts. They filmed "Body Tunes" at Dixon Recreation Center, the Mom's Weekend Fashion Show in the MU Ballroom and they filmed a baseball game. These remotes. Crouch explained, "try to involve the students."
The station held a recruitment fair the second week of every term. The fair allowed students a chance to talk with people about working for the station. KBVRTV was offered as a class and students received credit.
Students were trained to do the work and could work their way up through the ranks.
"We've gotten a lot of response from the new shows and remotes." Crouch said, "because we've been promoting." Part of their promotion of the new shows was a contest in which they brought a car into the studio and had someone ride with Kevin Tokstad at the introduction of "Traveling Tunes." People filled out a contest entrance form and mailed them into the studio. Then the "Traveling Tunes" staff picked a name at random and that person appeared on the show in May.
"KBVR is as close as you can get to a regular TV studio and it's one of very few college stations on the West Coast." said Crouch.
