Broadcast Journalism is not a theoretical discipline. Our students must be prepared to face the unique challenges of the real-world, real-time media. At Suffolk’s Studio 73, students work alongside seasoned production professionals to write compelling stories, edit polished television packages, conduct interviews, and film live segments.
Studio 73 combines the most advanced HD technology with an unbeatable location, just steps away from the State House and Boston Common. Opportunities are available on both sides of the camera to provide students with a 360-degree view of the television news experience. Under the direction of Studio Manager and Instructor Jerry Glendye, student crews work on projects such as:
- “Suffolk in the City,” a weekly segment on New England Cable News (NECN), featuring Suffolk University students as real LIVE news reporters
- Creating a weekly segment called “Don’t Retire, Inspire” in partnership with Boston Mayor Marty Walsh’s Commission on Affairs of the Elderly, which is shown on Boston Neighborhood Network
- Producing additional interviews and shows for NECN and Comcast Newsmakers
- Several production classes allow students to earn credits while gaining practical experience creating complete programs in a state of the art facility
- Hosting and interviewing guests in studio, including Governor Charlie Baker, Secretary of State John Kerry, State Representative Robert Kennedy, and Senator Elizabeth Warren, and entertainment and sports celebrities such as Edward Burns, Tom Green, Cam Neely, Fred Lynn, and Bob Ryan.
