UF’s College of Journalism and Communications’ Integrated Newsroom Facility (INF) is among the most unique multimedia learning environments in the U.S. It is designed so students can work in a real-world newsroom atmosphere, better positioning UF grads for the ultra-competitive media job market. INF, opened in August 2012, is host to the college’s news, weather, and sports operations. The technologies in the INF allow students to work in print, radio, and television, so they can gain experience in all three mediums.
“The experience of learning to create high quality content for distribution on multiple media outlets serves as one of the core benefits of the project,” said Randy Wright, Executive Director of Multimedia Properties. “For the communities we serve, it means students can produce more local news, weather, and sports content than ever before, and produce it in the highest quality possible.”
