Milwaukee station helps students considering career in journalism

A television station in Milwaukee is helping college students get a hands-on preview of what it’s like to have a career in TV journalism.

Janet Hundley, RTDNA Region 4 Director, writes that WTMJ-TV works with UW-Milwaukee to offer a class titled “The Making of Television News” that meets in a WTMJ conference room for two hours each week to learn directly from reporters, photographers, and others in the newsroom about how they do their jobs.
