  • WCAP's HISTORYPicture

    WCAP celebrated its 30th anniversary in the 21-22 school year.

    WCAP was conceived in 1991 by sophomore students Brian Martin, Roderick Smith, and Bryan Johnson. Under the leadership of principal Diane Payne, Broughton equipped its video studio and began student-produced broadcasts in 1992. In February, 1993, WCAP transitioned to a daily, live program format, which continues today. Advisors for WCAP have included Ann Bridgers (1992 - 1995), Melvin Williams (1992-1993), Brandon Mangum (1993-1995), Julian Bridgers (1995 - 1999), Tracie Clarke (2013 - 2017), Kris Hixson (2017-2018), and Brian Martin (1999-2013, 2018-present).

    WCAP, 1993-1994 Along the line, numerous groups have helped WCAP become the success it has, including the BHS PTSA, The Capital Foundation, The Class of 1999, and the BHS Band. SAS Institute provided past newsdesk sets. In 2018, Cicso donated a generous amount of professional production equipment in memory of WCAP alumni Chris Lang (class of 2001). The law firm of Womble Bond Dickinson also donated some video equipment in 2019.

    In 2018, WCAP moved into the C.T.E. department at Broughton. While offering solid career-path training, it still provides a broad communication arts education in motion picture studies. All new course blueprints were authored and approved by DPI in 2022.
