News22: Support Journalism Students

Why News22?

News22, is a New Mexico State University tradition that dates back several decades. NMSU is one of very few universities with a live, student-produced newscast that is broadcast throughout the community and not just on the campus. As such it provides real-world, hands-on experience for all the students who take part. Those of you who have been through the program know its importance.

You also know News22 is intense and time-consuming. Most students would like to spend more time at News22 learning their craft but they must divide their time among school, work, and family responsibilities. At this time diminished support from the university means we can offer stipends to only four News22 student journalists. The lack of funding threatens the vibrancy of the program.

We want to make it possible for more students to avail themselves of the opportunities at News22 and that’s where you come in. 

Your support will empower our student journalists through valuable scholarship support that gives them the opportunity to continue to grow as young professionals.

News22 alums are everywhere. They are correspondents for NBC, NPR, and reporters for network affiliates all over the country. Our recent graduates are honing their skills in small to medium markets, our older graduates are established in cities such as Houston, Denver, and Chicago.

We want to continue to turn out quality broadcast journalists and continue to make you proud of News22. Your contributions will help us do that.

How will the contributions be used?

100% of all contributions made through this platform will go directly to help News22 student journalists. Your donations will be awarded, in the form of scholarships to deserving hard-working students. Every dollar will go toward the ongoing development of a vibrant student-produced newscast.
