the ‘fax weighs Anchor

Dear ‘fax followers, fans and alumni :

It’s a new school year and time for a new look and a new name. Starting mid-November, 2014,  the King’s television news workshop launches The Anchor.

Social. Local. Dynamic.  The Anchor connects you to the news from Halifax.  It’s a place for your stories and your voices –  King’s journalists keeping you informed.

Join us at our new site, (link to come)

If you’re in the Halifax NS area, catch the show on TV – Tuesday nights at 7:30 on Eastlink Television, channel 10.

Note:  if you’re looking for the work of the many King’s journalists who filed to the fax, it will still be archived here!

Questions? Comments? Contact the  University of King’s College School of Journalism
