Nearly 48 hours after getting their initial instructions for creating a radio show, the students of MSCM 398 were hard at work, researching stories, editing raw audio, and planning the program for Saturday morning. Newsroom 2 was humming with activity.
This day also featured a lecture by the eminent Professor of Communications and Lincoln Chair Brian Winston.
