Students led by Philip Merrill College of Journalism faculty members met with candidates, talked with voters, covered campaign parties and analyzed election results for a slew of consequential races across Maryland, including a historic governor’s race.
The journalism produced by Merrill College students reached audiences through the Maryland Newsline television broadcast, livestream video, social media and the CNS website.
CNS is the college’s nonprofit news organization with bureaus and news teams in Annapolis, Baltimore, College Park and Washington. It’s led by faculty members with distinguished journalism careers. Students are reporters, writers, photojournalists, broadcasters, data journalists and audience engagement managers.
