USC Annenberg Media Center Reacts to #AdviceForYoungJournalists

The Twittersphere erupted earlier this week when #AdviceForYoungJournalists became a trending topic after journalist Felix Salmon offered some thought provoking "words of wisdom" to aspiring newsies.

The USC Annenberg Media Center — conglomerate that includes Annenberg TV News, Neon TommyAnnenberg Radio News and other student media outlets — came together to flip the switch on the popular hashtag by offering #AdviceFromYoungJournalists.

In the video above, USC Annenberg students ask their predecessors to take notice of a revitalized generation of news writers and producers. ATVN also weighed in on the hot-button issue during their nightly newscast, giving professors and USC Annenberg alum Ashley Riegle the opportunity to extend their own pieces of advice.
