WLVR News & Lehigh University Journalism Student Stories
Lehigh Valley Public Media has partnered with Lehigh University’s Department of Journalism and Communication. The department offers a class focusing on NPR-PBS journalism. Students, in turn, contribute content for use on WLVR-FM and PBS39.
Department Chair, Jack Lule, finds this to be beneficial for both organizations, “One of the things that we always stress in the journalism department is experiential learning,” Lule said. “We strive to give our students as much experience as possible. We set up internships for every one of our students, and this is going to make those internships that much more plentiful and that much more engaging because they’ll be doing it right here on the campus with standards of the PBS and the NPR organizations.”
