Utah’s Economy

Students in Keriann Lynch’s intermediate reporting class covered Utah’s economy during spring semester 2011. They learned about business and beat reporting as they sought to find and tell stories of how economic change has affected all facets of our community. Each student chose a more specific beat under the broad umbrella of economy. Their wide-ranging beats included economic stories about: women, the University of Utah, community sports leagues, the state legislature, live music, arts programs, homelessness, sustainability, families and university student programs and athletics.

Student-journalists were: Janita Badon; Whitney Butters; Jordon Cahoon; Rob Callister; Helen Cox; Armin Hamza; Parker Lee; Jenna Levetan; Flor Olivo; Michael Oman; and, Scott Wiseman.
