New Staff, New Opportunity

January 30, 2013

NCJC 2013Things are picking up steam in the newsroom.  We’ve got a fired up new staff, with returning staffers seasoned and ready to mentor.  We’ve been the lucky recipients of all new computers, upgrades to CS 6 and a new way to handle the workflow, Camayak. The students have already updated their website, The Skyline View, and some new staffers are eager to improve TSV’s video coverage.

The timing’s good for them to do so.  The staff will have the opportunity to attend two conferences this semester that are likely to help train them beyond the newsroom.  First, we’re lucky that the National College Journalism Convention is finally returning to San Francisco. Our students will get a chance to network with four-year college journalists.

But our “Superbowl” of conventions is the Journalism Association of Community Colleges State Convention which will be held in Sacramento this April.  Here, Skyline College journalists will be joined by over 550 community college journalists from California and beyond, with opportunities to compete in all sorts of journalism-related contests.

The students will be producing their first print issue of the semester, so look for it on the stands on Thursday.
