Several students at Ohio's Ashland University (AU) recently took home finalist awards at the national Intercollegiate Broadcasting System competition.
“The great thing about these honors is that we had finalists in both the radio and television categories," David McCoy, chair of AU’s Journalism and Digital Media (JDM) department. “This clearly conveys the converged media approach exhibited by JDM, as judged by blind peer reviews. Moreover, it enhances the fact the JDM is Ohio’s premiere small college/university academic media program.”
AU radio students were honored in four categories: Kate Siefert was among the top seven students in Best Newscast, Derek Wood and Noah Cloonan placed among the top five in Best Women’s Basketball Play-by-Play, and Wood also was named among the top five in Best Use of Facebook and the top six in Best Show Promotional Poster.
Television students Andrew Clough, Colleen Rimmel, Connor Dunwoodie, Halee Heironimus and Sean Honaker placed in the top five in Best Newscast, while Kate Siefert and Tom Prizeman were among the top four in the country in Best Sports Program. Honaker and Wood were also joined by Erich Metze, Brandon Hood and Noah to reach the top three in Best Sports Play-by-Play.
"Ashland's JDM program was indeed on the forefront of new media education regionally and nationally in 2010,” McCoy said. “Our program continues to be a model of rigorous academics reinforced by real-world experiential learning opportunities for 21st century journalists.”
