What is the OC News?
OC News is CSUF’s student television newscast. The half-hour show is shot live every Monday and Wednesday during the academic year as part of COMM 472: Capstone – TV News. Students write, produce, direct, report and anchor the newscast. Students enrolled in the broadcast journalism capstone class are required to work on OC News. The production also involves students from other disciplines who want to volunteeron the newscast. OC News gives students a real-life experience in a television newsroom. Students learn what it’s like to be an anchor on a live program or a reporter in the field reporting live from the scene of a news event. Alumni of OC News are working in the television news mar- kets such as New York, Baltimore, Oklahoma City, Fresno, Orlando and Portland, just to name a few.
