Edward R, Murrow College of Communication Professor Carolyn Robinson, Student Reporter Calley Hair, and Student Videographer Marc Wai created a short documentary on the effects the 2014 mudslides in Oso, Washington had on the journalists who covered the tragedy. When deciding what aspect of the story they wanted to tell, they realized that journalists specifically hadn’t been interviewed. They thought about how most journalists focus on the victims, and the community affected, but no journalist covers the journalists who are shoulder to shoulder, seeing it all unfold, Hair said.
