To prepare students for careers in an ever-changing media landscape, MTSU's College of Media and Entertainment will launch a January "teaching hospital" approach to journalism. Val Hoeppner (HEP-ner), the director of the Center for Innovation in Media, tells NewsRadio WGNS "Studio M" will focus on mobile storytelling about issues facing millennials...
"Studio M" was jumpstarted by a 50-thousand dollar grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to advance journalism and journalism education.
Hoeppner says issues such as employment, health care, the economy, education, student loan debt, gender pay gap, religion, race and diversity will be reported, recorded, produced and written.
