Welcome: the new East Alabama newsroom

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

It's a big day for us in Auburn University.

Auburn's School of Communication and Journalism and our parent company Raycom Media have announced a pioneering partnership to train multimedia student journalists while bringing our viewers the best news coverage from all over east Alabama.

The newsroom is unique because it sits in the middle of an Auburn University classroom. Classes begin in the spring of 2014, and will allow Auburn faculty and Raycom reporters to work side-by-side with students in a working newsroom.

Students will learn the importance of journalistic integrity, how to report fair and accurate news stories all while fine-tuning their writing and on-air skills. These students will also have the opportunity to produce stories for air, online, and social media.

Raycom is investing $350,000 into the project.
