is a live, local, thirty-minute television broadcast that airs in all of west Texas and southern New Mexico. New Mexico State University students produce this for our PBS affiliate, KRWG-TV. This award-winning newscast is a unique opportunity for students to gain actual experience in television journalism and performance. The students produce, write, report, and anchor news, sports, and weather for the Southern New Mexico television audience under the direction of an experienced television news professional. The live studio production is entirely staffed with a student technical crew. Students also produce news segments in the Spanish language for airing on KRWG V-me TV. When students graduate from the News22 newsroom and studio they have all the tools needed to succeed and thrive in a highly competitive field. News22 has been on the air for more than twenty years and has helped students become leaders in the world of broadcast journalism. Turn on the local television news in almost any major city in the United States and you are likely to spot a former News22 and NMSU alumni. Some of the participants volunteer, others are paid employees, and still others take News22 for credit. Students from all over campus take part in News22—you do not have to be a journalism student.
