The broadcast journalism program is led by Professor Mark Feldstein, a former on-air investigative correspondent at CNN and ABC News who is the college’s Richard Eaton Chair in Broadcast Journalism. Other broadcast faculty members bring rich professional backgrounds to the College: Cassandra Clayton, a former NBC correspondent, teaches intensive courses in broadcast news writing, and Sue Kopen Katcef, former State House correspondent for Maryland Public Television, serves as director of the Capital News Service Television Bureau.

Graduate students have the opportunity to enroll in the Capital News Service and serve as field reporters, producers, writers and anchors for Maryland Newsline, a news show that airs three nights a week on UMTV, the university’s cable TV station.
