Media 4 Carroll
Media 4 Carroll is one of Carroll's most active clubs, and is one of the only clubs of its kind in the greater Dayton area. The club serves to give students the opportunity to create their own media content and present it to an audience. The main purpose of Media4Carroll is to produce and air a weekly closed circuit television show, which students watch each Friday on Channel 4. The show serves to convey announcements, promote upcoming school functions, and highlight events. Students film and edit sports, social events, clubs, and other school activities. Students also write and produce their own 'comedy' segments regularly, although many observers to the show perceive it as 'corny'
In addition to the weekly show, the club also produces DVDs of special school functions including the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Recently, Media4Carroll began producing DVDs highlighting the school's football team, and CDs of the Carroll Concert Band's performances. In the last few years, Media4Carroll has remodeled its facilities and upgraded its equipment to become all digital. The club has a variety of professional video acquisition and production equipment. The club has the capability to produce both live and prerecorded content.
Over the years many Carroll graduates have found careers in this field, in part because of their experience in Media4Carroll.
