Studio M immerses students in video journalism
Studio M—which stands for media, MTSU, and Murfreesboro—focuses on a "teaching hospital" approach to journalism. Students have the opportunity to cover issues that impact the community, including employment, health care, the economy, education, student loan debt, gender pay gap, religion, race, and diversity.

Knight Foundation. The Tennessean committed $10,000, and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee contributed $25,000.
