leave a comment »

On April 20th, 2013, three black, male suspects were caught on camera breaking into the Hattiesburg Zoo in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Although no money was stolen, large amounts of candy were taken. Hattiesburg police have been on the look out for the three thieves, one believed to be an adult while the other two believed to be minors. The suspects broke the lock to the Hattiesburg Zoo gate. This is the second Zoo break in within the past month. You can visit WDAM website for more details regarding the story and ways to help locate the criminals.

This is an example of multimedia storytelling through video news story. On Saturday, April 13, I ventured down to Main Street in downtown Hattiesburg where South City Records, an independent student-run music label, held its first music festival. The festival was a free event and was open to the public. The music started at 4pm and included artists K. Juan, Roundhouse Groove, The Drew Young Band, Pell, Cardinal Sons and Oh, Jeremiah. The festival, coinciding with the Art Walk, brought out a large crowd of all ages.

However there are people doing their best to keep it alive and develop a local jazz scene: New orleanians, locals, faculty members, club owners etc.

Find out where does the slowly growing jazz scene of Hattiesburg is available to you, now!
