Among the thousands of TV crews covering last week’s visit to the U.S. by Pope Benedict XVI, the journalists from Duquesne University stood out, reports Ann Rodgers in the Post-Gazette.
The students were the only college media credentialed for the pope’s visit.
A spokeswoman for Washington, D.C., Archbishop Donald Wuerl joked that she could hardly say no to a crew from Duquesne, where Wuerl used to teach.
The 12-person team from DUQ-TV and their faculty adviser are producing a one-hour documentary about Benedict’s visit. It will be available soon on the station’s website.
