TV Production Class

On January 25th, WUSF TV is airing “Talk of the Town: Socially Digital,” a look at social media websites like Facebook and Twitter, and their evolution and effect on society. But what makes this program unusual is that it’s produced by a class from USF’s School of Mass Communications. This week’s University Beat takes us behind the scenes of the show, from the first pitch meeting to shooting day.
