TCU News Now
Our students produce high-definition TV newscasts in our studio five days a week. The programs range from three-minute updates to half-hour newscasts, which can be seen on tcu360.com and on TCU campus cable. Students report, shoot, and edit all of the stories, then produce and anchor the newscasts.
TCU Sports Now
The sports counterpart to TCU News Now, Sports Now is our weekly sports-only TV broadcast. The student-produced program covers all TCU sports, from varsity teams such as football to intramurals like rugby. And a few times each semester, our students leave the studio and take the whole show on the road, broadcasting live pre-game shows before major TCU sporting events.
skiff x 360
Our modern, weekly newspaper traces its roots to 1902, when The TCU Daily Skiff was founded 25 years before the Department of Journalism itself. Today’s skiff x 360 (pronounced “skiff by 360”) reports the major campus news stories of the week, looks ahead to the weekend, and showcases a big student reporting project when it hits newsstands every Thursday morning.
TCU’s campus sits in the middle of a vibrant, dynamic area of Fort Worth, and our students cover every aspect of it on the109.org. It’s our hyperlocal news site devoted to the 76109 ZIP code and everything in it.
Image is the journalism department’s award-winning long-form news magazine. It’s produced once a year by students in the journalism department. Image has won multiple national awards for content and design.
