WUSF-USFSP Studio / Modern Warfare Conference
WUSF Public Media is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a brand new radio studio recently opened at USF St. Petersburg. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you to the ribbon-cutting, and tells you how the new studio is going to make a difference for WUSF's news coverage, USFSP journalism students, and the residents of St. Petersburg.
Revolutions driven by social media, cyber-terrorism and drone technology are just some examples of how modern warfare continues to change. But a recent conference at USF shows that the human dimension of war has not changed. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 takes you to the conference, which drew policymakers and experts from the military as well as non-governmental organizations.
WUSF Public Media GM JoAnn Urofsky and Dr. Mark Walters, Associate Professor in the USF St. Pete Dept. of Journalism & Media Studies, talk about how the new WUSF radio studio at USF St. Pete fits into both the city and the university's journalism program.
