Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

While journalism courses had moved into other types of media, the main emphasis was still on print publications. In the 1970s, the journalism program began moving more into television news. In this 1974 photo, journalism instructor Lewis S. Barrett (right) congratulates three students—George Park, Richard Charles Barsh, and Glenn Chitjian (left to right)—on their first place win from the Society of Professional Journalism for Student-Produced Films. The students had assisted in the development of a half-hour television news show, the North Orange County Report. The news show also won the Western Regional Award in May 1973, with FC students competing against major universities throughout the western states. The men are standing in front of the Hornet editor’s and sports feature’s offices.
