What's a journalism student to do once the civic election is over? Talk about election night coverage, of course.
Around 30 creative communications students helped in election night coverage at news stations and papers across the city. I reported for the live student broadcast at KickFM, and if you want to relive all the election night excitement one more time you can listen to it here (my mini doc on advertising in the election airs at the 9:00 mark)!
I didn’t get to watch or listen to much of the media’s coverage because I was zipping from one campaign office to another, so I can’t really offer my own observations. However, the blogosphere is having a great discussion about what local news outlets did on election night and who had the best coverage.
Free Press TV critic Brad Oswald asks: where was local TV?
Free Press video producer Tyler Walsh blogged about the papers’ first ever “wall to wall live video coverage of a major event.”
The Uniter’s Andrew McMonagle offers his observations on election night coverage.
Who do you think had the best election night coverage?
