Echo Forward

The Eastern Echo and the student media team are focused on taking the news operation into the 22nd century, with an emphasis on multimedia delivery and good old-fashioned, strong reporting tools. Journalism is changing, but the work journalists produce is as necessary as ever. Among the many goals is transforming one of the Echo offices in King Hall into a small recording studio. Nothing fancy, just a way to produce video and podcasts with quick turnarounds so we meet the needs of a growing digital audience. 

Multimedia delivery on a digital platform will keep The Echo relevant to the community it has served for 140 years. We're already producing podcasts, but could use some updated equipment, from acoustic tiles to mics and a mixer, to move us to the next level. The digital presence, podcasting, video production, and infographics will help broaden our audience base, engage greater participation in journalism, and deepen news consumption by Generation Z. 

Your generous donation will help us produce quality journalistic content in an up-to-date format that interests and benefits younger audiences, train the next generation of journalists with multimedia skills, and move the Eastern Echo forward to the next century!
