Tiger TV

Tiger TV broadcasts live news, sports and entertainment programs four days a week via live stream, and rebroadcasts three days a week on WBTR, or local cable channel 19.  

For nearly 30 years, Tiger TV has been equipping students with real-world experience to prepare them for life after graduation. About 60 students each semester work in front of and behind the camera as reporters, anchors, videographers, producers and managers. The daily newscast, “Newsbeat,” is broadcast from LSU’s $1 million state-of-the-art studio. For “Tiger TV Tailgate,” students broadcast a live show in front of Tiger Stadium before every home football game.  

Tiger TV reporters break news, host political debates and interview sources from Coach Ed Orgeron to Gov. John Bel Edwards. Our alumni work at news stations across the nation. One former station manager is now the director of communications at CBS Evening News.

Watch: Tayor Curet's 2016 SPJ National Mark of Excellence Award for Television Sports Reporting for his piece on LSU football player Kendell Beckwith, "Beckwith with his Horses."
