Campus News named best college newscast by Society of Professional Journalists for third straight year

Posted on April 07, 2017

For the third year in a row, the Society of Professional Journalists has named MSUM’s Campus News the winner in the student newscast category in its annual Mark of Excellence Region 6 Awards. In addition, Campus News students earned twelve individual awards in six different television categories, more than any other school in the region.

The Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) Mark of Excellence Awards for Region 6 includes colleges and universities in the states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. First place winners in each category advance to the national round of judging.

The Program Director for Campus News, Aaron Quanbeck, said that having SPJ name Campus News as the best college newscast for the third straight year says a lot about the dedication of the students. “This award is hard enough to win once, much less three times in a row,” said Quanbeck, “and it takes students who are willing to put in the hard work and long hours to make that possible.”  Read the rest of this entry →
