Student Reporters Played Critical Role in WAER 88.3 FM’s Election Coverage

In keeping with the tradition of producing community-focused, quality journalism for Central New York, the news team at WAER 88.3FM, Syracuse University’s Public Radio Station, produced 48 stories related to the 2020 election in the final two months of the campaign through Election Day.

From “Your Election Blueprint,” an issue-oriented series of in-depth reports chiefly produced by James Corrigan G’21, to a series of feature-length stories highlighting various issues and races, culminating in WAER’s live election night broadcast which included a special one-hour “Syracuse Speaks,” followed by live updates during NPR’s programming.

Student work was heavily featured in interviews and reporter debriefs, contributing to important content to add to the public education and debate over this year’s election.
