Disrupt the News Challenge
TVNewsCheck and the Broadcast Education Association (BEA) have partnered to present a “Disrupt the News” challenge to uncover unique ideas for reinventing TV news to attract new viewers, particularly younger ones.
The high-visibility challenge will feature student journalists — or teams of them — competing to produce the best alternative local news content that can be integrated with TV stations’ usual linear mix of entertainment, advertising and promotion.
The awards, including cash prizes, will be presented at the 2019 BEA Convention, at NAB Show 2019 in Las Vegas.
