Students Blogging for Stories

Students at Virginia Commonwealth University are using simple blogging to get students exposure while providing area media with content. The journalism teacher at VCU, as well as members of the local media, say it is a win-win situation. Journalism students need clips to land internships and jobs while news organizations need stories to fill their print and online publications. Using a blog, however, is a rather unique way of delivering news content. It may eventually hold promise for Southwest Region News Service and perhaps some local media outlets.
