Keeping up with Innovation
Journalism is changing from its days where reporters vied for the news. The Internet, social media and technologies have set new expectations for journalists who are required to go beyond reporting. Adapting to new standards in an ever-changing world is one of the university’s priorities and was made possible for the UCM broadcasting area thanks to a UCM Foundation Opportunity Grant. Students can now shoot, edit and upload videos instantly to the social media accounts of KMOS-TV, the university’s public broadcasting station. Read more here
