Students pitch the news projects of tomorrow

A body positivity website. An enhanced set of platforms for a working-mom podcast. A networking site for freelancers. A food money-saving app for young adults.

What do all these things have in common?

They’re products pitched by students from the MEJO 463: Creating Tomorrow’s News Products course in the Reese News Lab at UNC Hussman —just one more example of the hands-on learning offered at Hussman to equip future leaders for the industry. Students pitched those products to a panel of industry professionals at the school, who provided real-world feedback on whether the products could actually succeed in the market.
