The 18 students enrolled in Kevin Lerner’s intermediate reporting and writing class will be relaunching the website known as The Red Fox Report. The site, originally started as a class project for a section of the same course in 2013, has been completely revamped visually. But the biggest change will come with the switchover in staff.
“This looks to be a really solid group of reporters,” Lerner said, noting that it was awkward to be quoting himself in a fake news story. “The first task though will be to get them familiar with the inner workings of WordPress, the content management system we’ll be using to run the site.”
