“WVU News,” a product of the P.I. Reed School of Journalism, recently launched a new website for the weekly, student-produced news program. Last month, it was named best student newscast in the country by the Broadcast Education Association.
The site provides School of Journalism students another opportunity to publish their work. It includes not only the latest weekly newscast, but also a Producers’ Blog, Twitter feed, student crew information, additional video clips and more.
In coordination with School of Journalism staff, the site was developed by a group of former “WVU News” students who saw the value of expanding the program beyond a weekly newscast.
