Global News Relay 2016 to focus on sports

Planning for Global News Relay 2016 is in full swing with the online broadcast scheduled for 5 p.m. GMT March 18.

More than a dozen universities from around the world have signed up to participate in the third Global News Relay, and additional universities are still being sought. GNR, as it is called, began in 2014 at the University of Salford in Manchester, England.

The theme for this year’s newscast is Sports in Our Communities with stories being produced by journalism students from universities in England, India, Australia, Bulgaria, the United States and more.

This year’s newscast is being coordinated by Professor Faith Sidlow and her students at California State University-Fresno.
