BGSU Journalists Cover ONA Convention

A group of seven BGSU journalism students ran the Student News Bureau at the Ohio Newspaper Association (ONA) annual convention in February. The convention, held every year in Columbus, brings together newspaper executives, editors and reporters from around the state.

BGSU student journalists produced a printed convention bulletin, shot video and photos, and managed the ONA Twitter account. The students were supervised by faculty members Dr. Nancy Brendlinger and Kelly Taylor.

Jason Sanford, the ONA staff member in charge of publications, and ONA executive director Dennis Hetzel were pleased with the students’s work. “My first reaction—and my reaction is shared by Dennis Hetzel—is that this is the most impressive student newsletter we’ve had in years,” Sanford said. “We’re also really impressed by the videos. Please tell the students they did a great job.”
