Scholastic journalism students develop important skills while on the staff of their high school or college newspaper, yearbook, online paper or broadcast program. But what do they do with those skills after they graduate? Behind the Byline answers that question – and the possibilities are extensive. This podcast delves into the lives and careers of former scholastic journalism students. They share how the skills they learned as students help them now, and how current student journalists can develop the skills they need to propel their careers. Brought to you by the Walsworth Yearbooks Podcast Network (WYPN), Behind the Byline provides inspiration, ideas and real life examples of the important role scholastic journalism can play in finding career success.

Great podcast for journalism students/advisors
Full disclosure, I’m married to host Evan Blackwell and went to college with the guest, but even if I weren’t and hadn’t, I’d rate this podcast 5 stars for journalism students and advisors. Whether I’d grown up to be professional in the field or not, the skills I learned in journalism school have propelled me through my career. High school and college journalism made me intellectually curious, taught me how to interact well with all types of people and made me fall in love with their stories.
