Local and national media outlets reported on the Temple DNC News Bureau as 20 students from Temple University’s School of Media and Communication reported for news organizations across the US during the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
The Associated Press visited us at the Democratic National Convention:
6ABC’s FYI Philly spent some time with us in class before the convention:
During the Democratic National Convention, about 20,000 members of the media will be here in Philadelphia, and among them, a group of student journalists embarking on the experience of a lifetime.
Philly Voice stopped by at the Media Pavilion:
Rob DiRienzo says he happily would have transcribed quotes or other menial tasks for any news organization willing to give him a credential to the Democratic National Convention. But DiRienzo and 19 other Temple University students have far greater responsibilities this week as part of the Temple DNC News Bureau, a class of student journalists serving as field correspondents for media organizations unable to send their own reporters to Philadelphia.

Temple Now reported from our final class:
It’s the last day of class before Temple DNC News hits the arena floor at the Democratic National Convention. The classroom hushes as Bryan Monroe, School of Media and Communication Verizon chair and professor, walks to the front of the room and asks a question. “What just happened at the RNC?”
