PHOENIX - ABC News has chosen Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication as one of five colleges where the network will open an on-campus bureau run by students.
ASU and ABC News officials say the bureau will provide an opportunity for students to report on breaking news stories in the area and produce original daily content for various ABC News digital and broadcast outlets, including "Good Morning America," "World News with Charles Gibson," and "Nightline." It will be based in the Cronkite School's new six-story complex in downtown Phoenix.
ABC says the initiative will provide unique insight into what America's 33 million 18-to-25-year-olds are thinking.
The four other schools are Syracuse University, University of Florida, University of North Carolina and University of Texas.
