The George G. Beasley Media Complex

The Beasley Media Complex

The Beasley Media Complex (BMC), which opened in 2013, is home to most of
the Department of Communication’s production classes. Named for George G.
Beasley, founder of the Beasley Media Group and a major donor for the facility,
BMC houses two state-of-the-art video production studios, our student-run radio
station, classrooms, multiple editing suites, and one of the department’s two
equipment cages.

WASU-FM radio and AppTV, the university’s award-winning broadcast media
outlets, operate out of this facility.

BMC is located at the corner of River and Depot Streets, across the street from
Walker Hall, where many of the other communication courses are held. It was
built on the site of the Town of Boone’s former bus station, which also housed a
local radio station. The stone façade of the building uses stones saved from the
original bus depot.

The department’s other equipment cage, with production equipment used in
classes for communication students outside of the Electronic Media/Broadcasting
major, can be found on the first floor of Walker Hall.
