WUSF Public Media is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a brand new 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.


WUSF has been a fixture on USF’s Tampa campus for fifty years, and three years ago, we added a studio at the Sarasota-Manatee campus. Now, we’ve done it again—this time, with a new studio at USF St. Petersburg. On this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we’ll take you to the ribbon-cutting and tell you how our new location is going to add to our news coverage while benefiting not only journalism students there, but also the residents of St. Petersburg.
