The Broadcasting Committee series (1 ft.) includes minutes, correspondence, and reports of the committee which oversaw radio and television broadcasting at the university. Initially this committee dealt almost exclusively with television broadcasting. Following a reorganization of broadcasting administration in 1958, the committee took on greater responsibility for supervision of radio broadcasting. The files contain information on the development of television broadcasting policy and programming, the role of the Television Center as a service unit for the university, expansion of television facilities, the founding of student radio station WCBN-FM in 1972 and the ensuing controversy with Eastern Michigan University's WEMU over frequency allocation, and the operation of WUOM and WCBN.
The series is arranged variously by calendar or academic year with minutes, correspondence, and reports interfiled in a single sequence. This series seems to have been the principle administrative file of TVC directors Garrison and Schumacher. This series is continued by the Remley, 1980-1987, series which was the main administrative file of Fred Remley, Schumacher's successor as head of Michigan Media.
