BG24 News finds new momentum
Freshman Brooke Ebersole almost attended Ohio University, but one student organization at BGSU got her to change her mind: BG24 News.
BG24 News is the student-run news program on campus that airs live sports, news and public affairs shows to all of Wood County.
"I fell in love with their broadcast. I got to watch them do a live show, and there was a freshman on the air. That's when I knew I wanted to be a Falcon,"
Ebersole said. And as a freshman, Ebersole became a reporter, appearing on air multiple times.
BG24 News was started in 1992 when a small group of students wanted to create a "real-world" news program on campus. "Numerous people warned us
that we should 'be prepared to fail,'" said BG24 News co-founder Chris Hursh '93. "Twenty-two years later, I'm happy to report that they were wrong."
