NBS completes four-peat at national convention

It was their final trip with Bloomsburg University’s National Broadcasting Society, the annual spring semester convention that has included visits to Atlanta, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and recently New York City. So, of course the contingent of senior mass communications majors wanted to make it count.

And they did, winning the On-The-Spot promo competition at the NBS-AERho National Electronic Media Association Convention for the fourth straight time.

The On-The-Spot competition, which itself has several categories, is one of many competitions held at the convention. BU’s chapter has zeroed in successfully on the promo category that calls for students to create a 30-second promo for NBS on sight within two days to film, edit and produce the clip for the judges.

National Broadcasting Society is a student run organization that focuses on broadcast media from audio to video and everything in-between. There are national chapters in different universities across the nation.
