First Vote in a Polarized Age: Live Election Coverage on PBS39
The student-run two-hour live broadcast covered all of the US national elections and aired on PBS39. More than 120 students from multiple majors delivered the results and provided up to the minute analysis and commentary. The broadcast also featured video essays, short segments about politics and policy from the perspectives of voters.
The spring 2016 edition of Lafayette Lens on PBS39 was a collaboration between two Policy Studies courses, the Health and Life Sciences seminar, independent study students, and students participating as a co-curricular activity. In total, about 60 students and five professors were involved in the production.
