Two BYU broadcast students win national minority fellowship

Two Brigham Young University students have been selected for the Meredith-Cronkite Fellowship, a week-long program for top minority broadcast students.

The Meredith Corp. and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University chose BYU students Marco Villarreal and Josh Molina as two of ten students across the nation selected to participate in the fellowship. Five of the ten students automatically come from ASU and BYU is the only school to have two students chosen to fill the remaining slots.

The fellowship program, which began in January 2007, is designed to identify candidates for newsroom jobs for stations around the country and to give promising broadcast journalism students experience.

In January 2008, Villarreal and Molina will spend one week in the CBS 5 newsroom in Phoenix, where they will work with the station’s reporters, producers, editors, videographers and instructors from the Cronkite School. Their work will include creating news packages and producing a 30-minute broadcast on deadline.
