Contributing Reporters on this Newscast:

Somerville Media Center – SMC’s UNews Program brought 11 young journalists from Arlington and Somerville together during April Vacation to learn from journalism professionals about how to get the scoop on real life local stories.

They curated and hosted a local journalism panel with representatives from BINJ and Somerville Scout, among others; then visited the Somerville Public Library to learn how to do real research–and distinguish “alternative facts” from the real ones. Then, they pitched and picked project groups, coordinated and facilitated interviews with key community members, and finally edited their projects into a cohesive news package to be distributed with the Somerville Neighborhood News. We’re so proud of all they accomplished in just 4 short days, now you can see for yourself!
