Broadcast journalism. Broadcast journalism students learn the importance of producing responsible news coverage while maintaining strong ethical standards. Our program’s core focuses on teaching the principles of storytelling through video, audio, and powerful writing. Our students learn through their experiences, which include producing multimedia content for television, radio, and digital platforms in English and Spanish. Their award-winning weekly newscast, Fresno State Focus, is a collaborative effort between students in the broadcast and multimedia options. Broadcast journalism graduates are now reporters, producers, and anchors at local and national radio and television stations. They also work at network outlets including ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, ESPN, Telemundo, Univision, NPR, and PBS.
