LI Bureau to Move Into New Newsroom

Last night at the end of the 11:00 newscast, Chris Wragge and Kristine Johnson talked about a "new addition to the CBS 2 News team."

Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz and School of Communication Dean Cybil Delgaudio unveil the NewsHub sign.

It's Hofstra University's converged newsroom, which was unveiled last night. The purpose of the new room, dubbed "NewsHub," is to put print, broadcast and online journalism students in the same area allowing for better integration of information.

Students demonstrate the technology in the new newsroom.

CBS 2 announced that its Long Island Bureau will soon be based out of NewsHub. The bureau is currently housed inside Hofstra's radio station, WRHU 88.7FM.

Dozens of people were on hand to watch NewsHub in action.
