Y.B.O.T., with the slogan: Connecting you to WMU, was created in 2012 to help keep students informed on current events, as well as both local and national news via 30-min televised campus-wide news casts. This organization is also meant to benefit students interested in the world of broadcast journalism and media communications and give them the opportunity to network and gain work experience.
