In 2011, “WVU News” was recognized by the Broadcast Education Association as the best student-produced newscast in the country. The television newscasts are produced by journalism students at the WVU P.I. Reed School of Journalism. “WVU News” reporters cover events on the university campus, as well as the Morgantown community. Students report, write, shoot and edit television news stories for the program. They also serve as on-air anchors, producers, directors and technical crew during newscast tapings at WVU’s professional television studio.
The award-winning program provides students with hands-on experience and access to professional, state-of-the-art digital equipment. Students who enroll in the “WVU News” course are well prepared for careers in television journalism after they graduate.
“WVU News” airs statewide on West Virginia Public Television and on Time Warner Cable in North Central West Virginia. The production is available for download on WVU’s iTunesU and YouTube. You can also follow “WVU News” on Twitter or visit the team’s website.
