The Hearst national championships in writing, photojournalism, television and radio broadcast news and multimedia were conducted June 4-7 in San Francisco.

Often called the “Pulitzers of College Journalism,” the Hearst program holds yearlong competitions in writing, photojournalism, broadcast news and multimedia offering up to $500,000 in scholarships, matching grants and stipends.

WKU’s School of Journalism & Broadcasting finished fourth in the Hearst program’s 2011-12 Overall Intercollegiate Competition, the school’s 19th consecutive finish in the top eight nationally. WKU won the Intercollegiate Photojournalism Competition for the fourth consecutive year and 20th time in 23 years and also won the Intercollegiate Multimedia Championship.
