Mason Cable Network

Mason Cable Network, also known as MCN, is the student operated television network airing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to approximately 6,000 residents on the Fairfax Campus.

MCN has been serving the George Mason Community since the fall of 1997 and has thrived on the network’s signature motto “your face, your voice.”

Here at Mason Cable Network, we have built a training ground for any student who hopes to gain hands-on experience or further their career in television or film.

Starting in 2012, our broadcast switched over to high definition to increase the quality of our content.

Fall 2012 was the first semester that Mason Cable Network has had the ability to produce and distribute live content through the network and online websites through live streaming.  In the  years since, MCN has broadcasted several University events including Mason Madness, and the International Week Dance Competition.  We expanded our live content with a  weekly news show,  and through a partnership with Mason Athletics, broadcast the majority of  the Athletics home games including basketball, soccer, lacrosse, wrestling, and volleyball.

As we move forward, we strive to bring the Mason Nation programming that is geared to the community, whether that be news, sports, or entertainment.

No matter the occasion, no matter the program, Mason Cable Network is 24/7 programming for Patriots by Patriots. Come and visit us in the Office of Student Media in the HUB.

Assistant Production Manager:  Mason Cable Network

I started down the media path when I first discovered short films on YouTube. Shortly after, I joined Bishop Kelley’s television network where I learned the ins and outs of live stream production. While at Kelley, I worked with several other students to film musicals, concerts, and other events. On the side, I would make shorts with his friends that would ultimately lead to the founding of a production company. My future career goal is to produce television shows that showcase and promote the wonders of the world.
