Every semester, a new crop of Suffolk students take their turn in front of the camera as reporters for “Suffolk in the City,” a biweekly segment airing on the New England Cable News (NECN) Morning Show. The student reporters hit the streets of Boston to probe the public for opinions on subjects ranging from celebrity news to sports to events happening around the city.
The result of a partnership between NECN and Suffolk’s Studio 73 that launched in 2011, “Suffolk in the City” provides students with invaluable on-camera and reporting experience for a major news station, as well as an enviable clip reel to show to prospective employers.
Many Suffolk students got their start on the air at Suffolk, but where are they now? We tracked down some program alumni to see whose mic they’re holding today.
