WOUB’s Election Coverage Has Digital-First Focus< < Back to
Emerging journalists at WOUB Public Media took a digital-first approach with this year’s election coverage. Along with creating video stories to air on Newswatch, student reporters also produced web pieces and delivered results updates on Facebook Live the night of the election.
Watch the Facebook Live videos from election night here. WOUB reporters covered Issues 1 and 2, the Federal Hocking School Board race, the Meigs County Jail levy, the Alexander Schools levy, and the Athens Cannabis Ordinance.
Ohio University students volunteer their time at WOUB Public Media to gain practical experience to complement their studies. Members of the WOUB News professionals train, guide, and mentor student volunteers who exercise their skills in our multimedia newsroom and studios. As a whole, our goal is to explore and share stories that will leave a lasting impact on our region and our communities.
