The Mission of The County Line
Each week our broadcasting students team up to create this uniquely local television newsmagazine. We’re committed to covering the people, places and issues that matter to our local audience.
We call our show THE COUNTY LINE because our view of our local communities is situated along the border that connects Lawrence and Mercer Counties.
Our students produce nearly two dozen original 30 minute editions of TCL each year.
TCL airs live on WCN each Thursday night at 7:30.
TCL provides a valuable community service to area viewers while giving Westminster students genuine, hands on experience as television producers, directors, reporters, anchors and technical crew.
It’s an opportunity to cover local human interest stories and community issue often ignored by the commercial television stations in Youngstown and Pittsburgh.
TCL also provides Westminster students with the opportunity to integrate theories and fundamentals of communication and media into an operational television station dedicated to the local audience.
