The IWUCom student-produced Spectrum News won first place in the annual Indiana Association of School Broadcasters (IASB) College Radio/TV awards. Spectrum News was a weekly production of IWU’s Television News class in fall 2013.
Students wrote, photographed and edited original news stories from across campus throughout the last half of the semester and delivered the news live in studio once a week.
The newscast placed first, ahead of productions from Goshen College and the University of Indianapolis. Overall, ten schools from across the state submitted more than 200 entries for the various IASB awards, including Ball State University, The University of Southern Indiana, Huntington and Taylor Universities.
The awards continued for IWU students with a second place, non-news program for The All-Nighter, a late-night talk show produced in spring 2013.
“We know our students do great work all the time,” said Dr. Randall E. King, Professor and Director of Broadcast Media.
“It’s nice when others notice it too and they can see how their work compares with that of their peers,” King said.
