Bear News is the name of the student-produced newscast at the University of Northern Colorado. Students produce newscasts on twice a week in a state-of-the-art television studio and newsroom. 

The primary purpose of our newscasts is to provide news and information to our UNC community. On our last newscast of the semester, reporter Tatiana Williams produced this story Reflecting on the Legacy of Bishop-Lehr Hall as it Faces Demolition at UNC.

This vital newsroom experience provides student journalists with learning opportunities to help them understand the entire process of gathering and distributing the news.

This past April, Bear News students had an incredible opportunity to explore the cutting-edge world of broadcast media. Their trip to Las Vegas for the National Association of Broadcasters provided an unparalleled learning experience, connecting them with hundreds of media professionals and introducing them to state-of-the-art technology.
The event showcased an array of groundbreaking tools and devices, from advanced cameras that can color-correct video in real-time to versatile screens that can roll up or even withstand a golf ball hit. This immersive experience allowed students to see the vast possibilities of modern broadcast technology.

The trip underscored the comprehensive and forward-thinking education that UNC's Journalism and Media Studies program offers. While students benefit from great technology in UNC's news studio, including green screens, teleprompters, and cameras, the exposure to the latest industry innovations at the National Association of Broadcast Show has equipped them with a broader vision for their future careers.
