In a journalism world increasingly dominated by products like Politico’s Playbook, Axios and The Skimm, journalism students at the University of Connecticut have created their own newsletter focused on Connecticut news.
The aim of The Roundup is to “guide you to the best journalism and most important news in Connecticut each week.” Right now the students are committed to delivering the product through the end of the current semester, but hopefully it’s a project that can be passed on to new groups of students going forward.
The newsletter is being produced by students in a class offered by journalism professor Marie Shanahan. It’s a seven member team. Analytics show they are already reaching an influential audience of working Connecticut journalists numbering in the 100’s.
