Mason Cable News & Noticias
Mason Cable News is Mason’s provider for information about news on and off-campus. The news broadcast airs LIVE every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. on masoncablenetwork.com and on Fairfax campus TVs channel 8.1. The news is available in English and in Spanish via the MCNoticias segment at the end of the broadcast. The news team seeks to deliver you Mason news, events, weather and interviews, giving the latest in both the local and national community.
Mason Cable News features a group of hardworking individuals with a passion for a career in the multimedia news industry. We strive to improve our own knowledge and skills within the industry by immersing ourselves into daily affairs, whether it is in front or behind the camera. We hope to promote inclusion, a strong work ethic, and a no-risk learning environment, where students can learn through firsthand experience.
As an extension of Mason’s TV news division, Mason Noticias launched back in January 2015. The only Spanish newscast on campus focuses on giving opportunities for Mason students looking to gain more experience delivering news in Spanish, and acquaint them with a newsroom broadcast setting.
As a news outlet, we are thrilled to have representatives from such rich and diverse backgrounds. To showcase this, we are happy to implement a section of the broadcast dedicated to delivering news entirely in Spanish.
We’re looking to recruit an eager group of students who want to bring the Mason Nation informative and exciting news.
