The only local news station in Northern Arizona, NAZ Today, is turning 10 this fall. This student-run program is housed in the School of Communication and gives students the experience they need for jobs after graduation. These students work in a real-world environment with experienced professionals. Former students have gone to work for NBC’s “Today Show,” local TV sports, directing news in Phoenix and Denver, producing news in Phoenix and other TV newsrooms throughout the country. Students have won several awards while in the program in categories that include TV Sports Story and TV Hard News Reporting. Most recently, NAZ Today won first place for Student Newscasts by the Broadcast Education Association.
