Journalism Students Produce Live Election Coverage

Home > News & Updates > Journalism Students Produce Live Election Coverage

November 3, 2004. On Election Night, students from the School of Journalism produced four live broadcasts of election news, commentary, and field reports from New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The broadcasts were accessible to the public from the School of Journalism's home page.

The students were aided by the Radio Broadcast Content Management System (CMS), a database-driven application created by CCNMTL to model the editorial process of radio journalism. Kristen Sosulski, CCNMTL educational technologist, worked late into the night with the students, providing technical assistance with the Radio Broadcast CMS. Students found that using the Radio Broadcast CMS to produce the Election Night coverage provided a great opportunity to put their journalistic skills to the test, highlighting teamwork, organization, and professionalism with the immediacy of live updates.
