The Indiana Daily Student, a leading provider of IU and Bloomington news coverage and WIUX, the university’s student radio station announced a partnership for news hour to bring listeners local news.  

“It’s an exciting time to work with them." IDS Editor-in-chief Matt Rasnic said. "It is really a great opportunity for our organizations to work together since we have different platforms and needs. It’s great collaboration to start sharing resources. ”

The IDS’s direct connection with WIUX’s hourly headline read allows listeners to quickly get the local news through the platform of their choice. The stories reported by the IDS reporters are edited for air by the students at WIUX and read throughout the day.

"I, along with the entire WIUX News team, am very excited to be working with IDS to deliver the best coverage to IU students," Tanner Chaille said. "This represents a great convergence of two important IU student media groups and we both benefit as a result. The greatest benefactor, though, is IU students. Collaboration only makes our work stronger and I'm glad we've been able to take this vital first step."

The old news hours read stories for the New York Times and original content from the WIUX news team. This news partnership allows the reporting of IDS staff to reach a greater audience and allows local coverage to be broadcasted.

The integration between IDS and WIUX allows for an easy exchange of coverage so the people can be informed. Listen to the news brought to you by the IDS at WIUX’s FM station 99.1 FM.
