UNL’s College of Journalism unveils new TV studio

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln invited students and alumni to celebrate renovations done to the second floor.

A large crowd gathered Thursday night for the ribbon-cutting at the Don and Lorena Meier Studio to welcome in the college’s newest broadcasting equipment.

The new television studio will provide journalism students with state-of-the-art equipment that aims to show them what a professional work environment is like.

Shari Veil, the dean, said the studio will bring in new opportunities and experiences for students.

“The studio will allow students to experiment, to play, to fall in love with media,” Veil said.

She said the taste of the real world will help students decide if the career is for them while building their professional portfolio.

“We want every student to have the opportunity to build their academic skill set and to explore their professional interest,” Veil said.

After the ribbon-cutting, guests could see examples of the work that students do in the media outlets sponsored by the college.

The event doubled as an opportunity to build connections in journalism, as students got the chance to speak with alumni.
