Recognized by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters as College Television Station of the Year for 17 consecutive years, MHTV is a 24-hour station that is cablecast to the CMU campus network and the Mount Pleasant community on Charter cable. All MHTV content is written, produced, directed, and edited by students. Program content varies widely, and provides students with a multitude of opportunities to learn from real-world, hands-on production experience. Students may also choose to learn the administrative side of television by serving in one of the many MHTV Executive Staff positions within the organization.

New show proposals are accepted each semester and are reviewed and selected by the Executive Staff. All shows are required to have two executive producers, each of whom have been involved with the organization for at least two semesters. One of the two producers must have successfully completed BCA 440 (Intro to Cinematic Prod & Post Prod). The cast and crew for shows can consist of any CMU students.
