It is a working newsroom, staffed by USF St. Petersburg campus undergraduate and graduate students. It serves the USF St. Petersburg campus and the surrounding community in three ways.

  • It provides training for journalism students at USF St. Petersburg campus and other schools.
  • It functions as a community connection for collecting and disseminating information and news.
  • It produces stories, features and announcements for the use by local and regional news media and community organizations, including The Weekly Challenger.
