mission

Away from commercial influences, our journalists resolve the ethical dilemmas of daily news, defend the ideals cultivated in their classrooms and obtain the hands-on experience that will prepare them for the professional world. ATVN journalists tackle a wide range of topics including community, political, international and sports news.

It is our hope that producers and reporters leave Annenberg TV News with the best visions of television journalism and the multimedia frontier fresh in their minds, so they will improve the profession and serve our society well.
