The Media Production Technology program offers a hands-on education in the field of media production and broadcasting. Students learn about audio and video production, writing styles for the mass media, and announcing for radio and television. The program offers students practical experience in producing, writing, editing, announcing, directing, reporting, and field and studio production. Students participate in the production of campus-based television and radio programs and are also involved with live telecasting of MCC sporting and campus events.  

Productions include:
MCC Today - A weekly television program produced by the Media Production students in cooperation with the MCC Production Center. The show usually includes two to three guests from around campus as well as sports updates. The show airs four times per week on MCC-TV (Comcast Cable Channel 12) in the Meridian area Fridays at 7 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., Mondays at 10 a.m., and Wednesdays at 3 p.m.

WEXR - The Media Production students operate WEXR 106.9 FM 'The Eagle' in cooperation with the MCC Production Center. The radio station is a full-power commercial FM station.

Sports Broadcasts - The Media Production students produce and direct many of MCC's sporting events every year. MCC baseball, soccer and basketball are broadcast primarily on MCC-TV (Comcast Channel 12) in the Meridian area.
