Making News

Working from home: Madison Mento '21 is a correspondent for Her Campus at Hofstra and an account executive at the student-run PR firm, The Swing Agency.

Even as classes have moved online this semester due to the COVID-19 crisis, student-run media outlets at the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication continue to produce programming about campus, local, and national news.

Student journalists are working from home and adhering to social distancing guidelines while they work on content for radio, television, print, and digital media.

Here’s how you can catch the latest programming in news and entertainment:  


WRHU 88.7 FM Radio Hofstra University: “Newsline” is live from 6:30-7 pm, Monday-Friday (you can also listen live on or download its mobile app).  “Morning Wake Up Call” airs student features from 8-8:30 am on weekdays, and “The Locker Room” sports show airs on Sundays from 8-9 pm.
