Meet the 2019 Hunter News Now Team

The Hunter News Now Team with their teacher Sissel McCarthy.

Students in Professor Sissel McCarthy’s Studio News Production class are getting ready for the third season of Hunter News Now, a biweekly newscast that focuses on the Hunter College community. Students will produce and anchor the 20 minute show that covers campus news as well as the arts and Hunter athletics. Chief CLT Renato Tonelli came to class last week to give students a quick lesson on their high definition cameras while Chief Digital Media CLT and Production Coordinator Peter Jackson introduced his tech-terns who will run the studio and control room. Studio news production students are already out and about on campus working on their first stories and looking for people to interview for our “Hunter Students Speak” series, so feel free to share your opinion and tune in for our first show on Wednesday, March 6th on the Hunter College Journalism YouTube channel.

IMA student Rebecca Centeno reporting on the refugee caravan crisis

IMA student Rebecca Centeno had co-wrote an article on the refugee caravan crisis in Mexico with Alexei Wood, San Antonio photojournalist and former J20 defendant. The article follows the multiple caravans that are escaping the crisis in Honduras and are currently residing in Mexico City, with their next stop set to Tijuana. The article was on the cover of last week’s San Antonio Current, a left leaning publication that is equivalent to the Village Voice. You can read the article here. Rebecca had also made a short video to accompany the article, which you can see below:
