Media at Fordham

Media and mass communication is at the heart of what we do as a department. Below is a list of our Radio, TV, and Print affiliates here at Fordham University.

WFUV

WFUV is Fordham's award-winning radio station and public media service, located in the basement of Keating Hall. An affiliate of National Public Radio, it is known nationwide for having some of the best adult alternative music anywhere. But it also has vibrant operations in both news and sports. The station is professionally run, but Fordham students play a major role. In the news department, students anchor broadcasts, do long-term reporting, and also get out and cover breaking city news. In the sports department, students call games and produce Fordham's renown sports interview show, One on One. If you watch professional sports in New York, there's a good chance that the person calling the game started his or her career in the WFUV sports department... from the Yankees' Michael Kay, to the NBA's Mike Been, to ESPN's Tony Reali. The station has its own training programs, and they're fantastic. You can contact George Bodarky for news at gbodarky@wfuv.org or Bob Ahrens for sports at bahrens@wfuv.org. There's a wide range of ways to get involved in the station's work, including video production, studio work, and marketing.

The Ram

The Princeton Review just named Fordham as the university with the eighth best newspapers in the country! The Ram, Rose Hill's weekly paper, has been Fordham's newspaper of record for nearly 100 years, and has spawned numerous prize-winning professional journalists. The newspaper is completely written, edited, and produced by Fordham students. Students who work on Fordham's student newspaper are so close-knit that they call themselves "the Ramily," and they warmly welcome new students to get involved. The Ram seeks students to report, write, edit, shoot photos and video, and do layout and illustrations. Sections include news, opinion, culture and sports. Planing meetings are held on Sunday nights, and production is done on Monday and Tuesday nights during the semester. You can see their online version at fordhamram.com and follow the newspaper at twitter.com/thefordhamram. To get involved, stop by McGinley B-52 on Sunday nights, or write to fordhamramonline@gmail.com.

The Observer

Founded in 1981, The Observer is the award-winning student newspaper of Fordham University. Based at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus in Manhattan, The Observer’s circulation also reaches Fordham’s Rose Hill Campus in the Bronx, making it available to all the students in the University’s undergraduate colleges and graduate schools. It is Lincoln Center’s fourth paper. The first was “The Curved Horn” that was brought over from Rose Hill when the Lincoln Center Campus was built in 1968. Two other papers, “The Review” and “Evex” were started up. By 1981, all three papers had folded and the school was ready for a voice for students and “The Observer” was born.

The Paper

The Paper is Fordham's alternative newspaper. It offers a critical and often humorous look at the university and the world. Its website, https://fupaper.wordpress.com, is currently under construction, but students can still feel free to look there to see examples of the paper's past work/ articles. The best contact info for interested students is to email paper.fordham@gmail.com. Located in McGinley B-48, the paper's weekly open staff meetings are held in McGinley Center's 2nd floor lounge, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. Production weekends are held roughly every other weekend.

You can also find the paper on Facebook and on Twitter @fupaper.

Fashion Magazines

Fordham students currently produce two fashion magazines, Mode and Flash. Both are always looking for students to get involved. They need writers, editors, photographers, and people to do layout. So take a look!

For Mode, go to www.modemagfordham.com or find them on Facebook.

For Flash, go to flashmagfu.tumblr.com or find them on Facebook.

New York Film and Television Student Alliance

The New York Film & Television Student Alliance (NYFTSA) is an organization that helps provide different opportunities for young college students pursuing a career in the film or television industry.

Through the work of its members, the group organizes a statewide summit (divided by region) that recruits industry professionals to work with students and present their experiences.

During the course of the year, the Alliance plans different opportunities for members to experience; this ranges from trips to Tribeca Film Festival, meeting members of different alliances across New York State, visiting sets of popular Television shows, and working with a talented faculty advisor to learn different aspects of the industry.
