Live from the Media Center

Broadcast journalism students in Gary Larson’s JOUR 490: Special Topics, Debate and Election Coverage class, will report live from the presidential debate media center, working alongside major international news networks, for the student-news program Studio G. Studio G is produced by Larson, an associate professor of journalism, and students in the television studios located in the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs. Broadcast journalism students, faculty and staff will provide approximately 10 hours of live coverage during the week of the final presidential debate, including five hours on debate day. Stories will also be reported in Spanish and will air during Studio G programming and on debate day.

A student social media team will be dedicated to sharing the coverage and engaging viewers. The media team includes Larson, Jennifer Ream, interim director of UNLV-TV; Dan Grimes, UNLV-TV engineer; and students Megan Eisenhauer, Briona Haney, Idania Ramirez, and Jennifer Hurtado.
