Beach TV News
Who We Are
Beach TV News is CSULB’s newly rebranded and relaunched student produced newscast which prepares students for careers in television news. Each week, students are put through a rigorous MMJ (multimedia journalist) bootcamp where they learn to write, shoot, and edit packages for TV and the web, as well as produce and direct during a live broadcast. The goal is to give students the skillset that will make them competitive and employable in the current journalism job climate.
