The Global News Relay brings together student journalists from 17 universities to collaborate on creating and hosting around five hours of news programmes, broadcast on CMACTV on 29 March.

The theme of this year's relay, hosted by California State University, Fresno, is solutions journalism. The project gives students a chance to establish connections with journalists in different countries, and learn new skills that might not otherwise be taught on their course.

In this podcast, speaks to Faith Sidlow, assistant professor, broadcast journalism at California State University, Fresno, to find out more about the work that it takes to get the newscast on air, and the stories the students are tackling.
