News and Sport

Team Description

The News and Sport team at URY work towards a series of projects. Every week, we produce reports, packages and audio interviews for URY's flagship News show: "The URY Newshour" on Wednesdays at 6pm. We then have a series of other News and Sport related shows that people can get involved in, including the "York Sport Report" Friday's 2-3pm. We have news related events and broadcasts such as Candidate Interview Night, where we interview every candidate running for an elected YUSU position in a five hour broadcast, and events relevant to national issues; during the general election we held our megashow from 8pm to 2am, reporting live on the results. Alternatively, we produce a wide range of social media, including a blog, and twitter and facebook breaking news reports. To celebrate, we go on trips, this years is to BBC Media City in Salford! Anyone can join the News and Sports team, you don't need any prior experience in journalism, we can teach you along the way. Whether you want to research or report, present or write, the News and Sports team has a place for you!
