Media outlets across the nation featured and cited the CoJMC on a number of occasions in November. UNL faculty, administration, student and staff appearances in the national media are logged at the UNL newsroom.
A 2013 study by Barney McCoy, journalism, that showed college students use their cell phones and electronic gadgets a lot in class, popped up in a Nov. 20 article in the Western Front, the student newspaper at Western Washington University.
Matthew Waite, director of UNL’s drone journalism laboratory, was quoted by the Washington Post and other national news organizations about expected commercial drone regulations from the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA is expected to require drone operators to have a pilot’s license. In stories that appeared from Nov. 24 to Nov. 26, Waite said that requirement would be a major disappointment. During the same time frame, a piece quoting Waite appeared in the New York Post and Morningstar.com. It described commercial drone operation as a growing and potentially lucrative field.
National media often work with University Communications to identify and connect with UNL sources for the purpose of including the university's research, expertise and programming in published or broadcasted work.
