MTSU opens new Center for Innovation in Media

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- Middle Tennessee State University has opened its new Center for Innovation in Media.

Reflecting changes in the media that now require journalists to be masters of multiple formats, the $700,000 center combines the offices of the student newspaper, student-run record label, student-run cable television station and two radio stations -- the student-run station and a public radio station.

Assistant Journalism Professor Leon Alligood said in a news release that the new media center is trailblazing, giving MTSU students leg-up in the changing world of journalism.

The center is part of the College of Mass Communications.
