News anchors Jessica Larché, Shari Loftley, Brittany Prince, Driadonna Roland, students in the TV news and advanced TV news classes at Florida A&M University’s School of Journalism and Graphic Communication have astonished us with their twice a week live newscast—and there’s more to come.
In addition to the “Live at Five,” newscast, which reaches more than 80,000 households on Comcast Cable, the “Week in Review Show,” will debut Friday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m.
The first anchor will be Kenneth Johnson II, a senior broadcast journalism major from Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. Congrats Mr. Johnson!
“This is an opportunity to recap important news stories covered during the week as well as give all of our students an opportunity to anchor a newscast,” said William Jiles, a FAMU broadcast journalism instructor who oversees the advanced TV news class.
Student anchors will rotate each week on the show, which will air on Fridays at 7 p.m. through the fall semester.
