Gathering election night results is an enormous job for news organizations, and four BW students were in the middle of the information-gathering hubbub in the WEWS TV-5 newsroom last night.

The group of students consisted of Education major Courtney DeSchepper '14, Political Science major Brianna Johnson '17, Broadcasting and Mass Communications major Liz Miller '15 and Political Science major Tiffany Artis '15. 

The students manned computers in the newsroom and helped to collect and turn around results for Cleveland's ABC affiliate, as their professor, Tom Sutton contributed on camera analysis to the election night coverage.
