Introduction to Broadcast News

Broadcast News

The Broadcast News emphasis prepares students to enter the exciting, fast-paced field of television news, a genre that continues to be the most popular choice for journalism consumers.

From video editing, production and studio work to writing, reporting, anchoring and producing, students learn every aspect of the television news experience. We use real-world methods and practical training in all our broadcast courses. Students produce a weekly cable TV news program, Insight, and intern at local television stations. Some elect to work at campus radio station WUMR.

Broadcast students can join the student chapter of Society of Professional Journalists and the University of Memphis Association of Black Journalists, two organizations with close ties to working journalism professionals in the Memphis area.

Graduates from the Department of Journalism's broadcast program have gone on to work as professional reporters, producers and anchors throughout the region and across the nation.
