STATESBORO, Ga. (WJBF) – Dozens of Georgia Southern students got a chance to experience a newsroom on Saturday.

 Our Brad Means, Stefany Bornman, and News Director Kathy Wideman hosted the second annual M-M-J for a day workshop.

Each person was assigned a role and had a 6 p-m deadline when the newscast started.

Students from all different majors attended the 1-day workshop.

“I can see myself doing this,” said Junior Journalism Major Joshua Crump. “This is just exciting for me, just being in this type of environment. It’s something I really want to do and something I am passionate about.”

“Honestly this is just great experience for me to have on my resume. We can show this show and I’ll say yes I made this block. This is something that I produced. I made sure that this was all in order.”Meg Elwood, Senior Multimedia Journalism Major, said.

Communications Department Professor Dean Cummings hopes the workshop helps students land jobs after graduation.
