An Inside View on a Radio DePaul Pocket News Broadcast

As a member of the Radio DePaul News team, I got an inside look on the daily Pocket News broadcast at noon on May 1, 2017. Freshman Sarah Breedlove and Sophomore Ryan Witry wrote and produced the show. Pocket News is a fifteen minute broadcast every weekday at noon and 5:00 p.m.
