The first News 20 at Five live newscast aired in 2007 on FAMU-TV 20 – Florida A&M University’s educational access channel. Once airing live twice a week, the newscast eventually evolved into broadcasting “live” 4 times a week, with a live webcast on Friday afternoon. Currently, FAMU-TV 20 is carried via cable television by Comcast to more than 80,000 households in North Florida and South Georgia.
Members of the News 20 at Five news team are student journalists enrolled in the Advanced Television News course. Student journalists from TV News (RTV 3320) and Broadcast Announcing (RTV 3234) volunteer with the newscast and assist with studio operations for course credit. Other students within the FAMU SJGC, not enrolled in either TV News or Advanced TV News, also serve as volunteers with the newscasts. The professor of the Advanced TV News course serves at the student media director.
