The Pulse is a centerpiece of EVIT’s Radio/Audio Production program, located at the Main Campus of EVIT. It is a public radio station that showcases the talents of the students enrolled in the program. The broadcasts provide current EVIT Radio students the opportunity to gain valuable experience contributing as play-by-play announcers, analysts & on-site engineers. EVIT students will also handle all pre and post-production of the broadcasts.
The Pulse has established itself as the go-to place for live radio coverage of high school athletics. Pulse Sports is entering its seventh year of broadcasting high school football, boys and girls high school basketball and high school baseball and softball games.
