Native American Broadcast Workshop

Andy Harvey Native American
Broadcast Journalism Workshop

Live and Learn in Flagstaff, Arizona

The Andy Harvey Native American Broadcast Workshop brings 20 Native American high school students from across Arizona & the Southwest to the NAU Flagstaff campus for a week to learn the “ins and outs” of broadcast journalism.

Usually held in June, workshop participants live in dorms on the Northern Arizona University campus in Flagstaff and work in the School of Communication’s Student Media Center newsroom and HD studio.

Working alongside NAU students and broadcast journalism professionals, the students produce multimedia stories, learn how to conduct interviews and produce a live-to-tape news broadcast covering the day’s local news.  

This workshop encourages Native American high school students to work together to tell the stories that are most important to them and their communities. We give them the tools to take that first step. This was the vision that the late Andy Harvey who worked to tell the stories important to him at KPNX 12 News in Phoenix. His dream was that the next generation would take up the torch and be the storytellers of their communities.

Cost: $50 tuition. Students are provided room & board during the week.
Travel to/from Flagstaff is not provided.
