Global News Relay 2015: Poverty
The Baylor Lariat participated in the Global News Relay’s second broadcast last year, which was the first time the Lariat took part in an international broadcast. Baylor was one out of a dozen universities around the world to contribute a 15-minute broadcast on poverty.
The Lariat prepared three stories that portrayed the effect of poverty in Waco for the Global News Relay. The first featured Chuck Rose, a homeless man. The story shares how Rose wound up sleeping on the streets and collecting cans for change. The second featured Mission Waco and their outreach programs for the poor. The last featured the roles that Baylor students had in service to help the poor.
The opportunity to partake in this global news broadcast led to the addition of the Lariat TV News, the Lariat’s broadcast team.
