“7,000 students are going to pass this facility,” explained Gateway Community College President Paul Brodie. “How many of those students are now going to get interested in a career in journalism?”

“We are licensed to serve the state so having a state of the art studio in New Haven is extraordinary,” stated Jerry Franklin, CEO and President of Connecticut Public Broadcasting.

The partnership will provide program and internship opportunities for Gateway students through Connecticut’s public Institute for Advanced Media.
