Bear News is produced under the supervision of the Journalism & Media Studies program. Under the direction of Professor Dale Edwards, students report, write, tape and edit their own stories. The show’s focus is the campus, but reporters also cover city, state and national events that affect the campus community. Meteorology students prepare and present the show’s weather segment. A student producer assembles the show rundown, a student crew operates all of the studio equipment in the JMS three-camera digital studio; student anchors present news, weather and sports.
Bear News is broadcast on YouTube each week on the Bear News YouTube channel, BearNews98.
