The Virginia newspaper that crowned the UCF Knights the 2017 National Champions of college football has teamed with Knight News to produce a special national championship commemorative edition newspaper.
The Prince George Journal of Virginia is featuring the work of Knight News student journalists in its special edition.
Prince George Journal Publisher Chad Harrison discussed the partnership with Knight News on the Open Mike radio show on 96.9 The Game.
“They took some great photos, did some great stories,” Harrison said of the Knight News students covering the Peach Bowl on the Open Mike show.
“We’ve partnered with them, and using their material and their stories — and a little bit of ingenuity from ourselves — we put this thing together, this championship edition, to honor the team, working with the student newspaper at UCF,” Harrison said. “It’s been a great team effort and it’s really a great publication.”
Knight News is an online newspaper, so it is a rare treat for UCF students to see their student journalists’ work in print.
