Spring 2022 General Staff Applications
KTSW’s Sports Department covers a wide variety of sports from San Marcos High School football to Texas State volleyball, basketball and more. Many sports staff members get their start as Sports Update Writers, then move on to anchor, provide play-by-play and color commentary during games, and host our one-hour talk show: Bobcat Radio. Staff members also learn technical skills by board producing and running remote broadcasts.
The Web Content department produces its own content as well as manages content from other contributing departments including Music, News, and Sports. Web content contributors aim to write lifestyle, entertainment and community piece each week, while copy editors use AP Style and PUG to edit material to make the pieces online-ready.
The Social media team showcases what KTSW is from music, artists, news, and sports. We aim to highlight what's going on around the San Marcos area while highlighting the KTSW brand.
The Multimedia department is comprised of videographers, photographers, illustrators, and live sound techs. We produce much of the visual and audio content seen on all our social media platforms, including promotional material, collaboration between the content produced in other staffs, and covering musical performances. Through all means of multimedia we showcase San Marcos, Texas State University, and KTSW.
