The Multicultural Media Producing Program (MMPP) is a one-year certificate program at Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis, IN and the first known program of its kind. The MMPP is designed to train today’s students to become tomorrow’s television news producers and newsroom leaders. It is open to students of all backgrounds with an emphasis on ensuring multicultural diversity and accessibility for underserved individuals. This program was established by Ivy Tech Community College in collaboration with JPMorgan Chase, Circle City Broadcasting and the DuJuan and Tina McCoy Foundation. The NAB Leadership Foundation and CBS News and Stations are proud to support ten (10) students with additional education during the two-semester MMPP program being taught at the Ivy Tech Community College.

Each MMPP fellow selected in the 2023-24 school year will benefit from the opportunity to participate in broadcast industry leadership, career development, and DEI training. This instruction may come in the form of recorded webinars or live online sessions. Each student will also be invited to the NAB Show in Las Vegas. Transportation, lodging for two nights and meal vouchers will be included.
