Marquette University Television - About


Marquette University Television was chartered by Marquette University in 1976 and is a registered student organization with the Marquette University Student Government and Office of Student Development. MUTV was formed through the diligent work of Bob Turner, former head of the Instructional Media Center, students Steve Olson and George Wensel, and other students and Marquette faculty and staff. Kenneth Shuler, a former engineer, is legend for making MUTV possible by running the campus cable system. As the story goes, during the night Ken would go to work running cables through offices and in tunnels under Wisconsin Avenue. Many of the original engineers died in a plane crash in the 70's that nearly crippled the program's success. George Wensel, who later went on to be a major force in sports telecasts and has a Sports Emmy Award named in his honor, died in a drowning accident in 1995. Ken, Bob, and George live on through the annual scholarships awarded to creative and innovative broadcasting students.
