The Lede

Members of the Spring 2013 JRNL427 Publications class produced the journalism-centered magazine, the Lede. The magazine features stories on the history of the IUP Journalism Department, career options for Journalism majors, unusual jobs pursued by IUP Journalism graduates, the technological revolution within the discipline, as well as interviews with current students who pursued double majors and/or minored in as many as three other disciplines.

In addition to learning how to write for the Web, students in the class also learned how to audio or video record for the Web, emphasizing the discipline’s plunge into media convergence.

Read the online version of the Lede to learn how the students produced the magazine, and you can read their biographies and view their portfolios from the staff pages of the online version.
