"Boston University journalism students will be in the thick of things, thanks to a unique opportunity: a special program designed to combine classroom instruction with field experience called “Covering the DNC.”
Photojournalism Professor Peter Smith said the program will allow as many as 80 students to work as professional journalists covering a national event.

The program will operate as a news agency, supplying stories to various news outlets around the nation.

In addition to adding to their professional portfolios, students will publish a newspaper and web site.

“[This type of program] creates a whole world for a different kind of education,” Smith said. “It puts the focus where it needs to be – the real world.”

Professor Robert Zelnick, journalism department chairman, agreed. “I would think that a number of universities in the city are interested in doing something with the DNC,” Zelnick said. “I think we would be one of the only schools turning it into a real journalism event, working with real papers, filing real stories.”

Quote from Hearst-Argyle VP for News Brian Bracco

"The BU students working along side [our] reporters and photographers have been a wonderful addition to the Hearst Argyle Commitment 2004 political initiative.

They have supplied many of our stations with valuable information, video and sound that we may have missed without their participation.

The students and adviser Susan Walker are enthusiastic participants in all phases of coverage and planning.

I not sure who is learning more or having more or them...but we
think this experiment has worked out great for both sides.

The students have been terrific and very professional in all aspects of
their coverage.   They all have a bright future in our business."

Broadcast Journalism students cover convention for Hearst-Argyle Group

“As the only college in the country to have credentialed students covering the DNC, I feel like I couldn’t be luckier to be a B.U. student.” - Alexis Guy

That quote reflects the unique opportunity afforded Broadcast Journalism students at Boston University as they work closely with the Hearst-Argyle Television Group. They own 25 television stations throughout the country and our students are providing convention and delegate coverage for four of those stations

  • WGAL – TV Lancaster, PA

  • KHBS/KHOG-TV Fort Smith/Fayetteville, Arkansas

  • WAPT-TV Jackson, Mississippi

  • KSBW-TV, Monterey, CA

The students have already provided video of state delegations at the FleetCenter as well as an interview with former president Bill Clinton at his DNC book signing. They even have video of Andre Heinz and his Schwarzenegger imitation!

Student Melissa Weiner sums up her experience this way, "Important figures are taking us seriously and are treating us like professionals.”

Professor Susan Walker is supervising the students at the FleetCenter. "They are treated as working journalists by the Hearst-Argyle staff which provides work space, precious credentials and helpful advice. It's a win-win situation for all of us."
