Syracuse University Broadcast Journalism

GroupAccount image

Audio storytelling is an important part of the curriculum for students here at Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications. Students in the Broadcast and Digital Journalism major are creating creative audio stories blending respect for the tradition of journalism with the "edge" and passion of the millenial generation.

These stories are looking for a good home. If they air, they will mark the professional start for some of the most inspiring future storytellers of their generation. All of these stories are produced in radio journalism courses taught by fulltime instructor (and part-time independent producer)  A. Randall (Randy) Wenner.
