The Tennessee Journalist has been the School of Journalism’s news website for the past decade. It has given students experience in web journalism that has pushed them to find jobs and internships. Through interviews with past and present writers, editors and the founder and former faculty adviser of the site, the story of the Tennessee Journalist has gone past just the content that has been published on the website. Those who have been involved with the website through its changes over the years have valued it, the lessons learned and the people they have come to meet through it and they hope that the same can be said for the future members of the site.
