Student journalists account for around one-in-ten state capitol reporters in the United States (11%), according to a recent Pew Research Center study. In some states, however, they account for a much larger share of the statehouse press corps, with notable increases in some places since 2014.
Student statehouse reporters often work for a university-run news service or as student interns at news organizations. University and college outlets sometimes have a model similar to wire services and some nonprofit newsrooms, in which their reporting is carried by a number of local news outlets. The number of students often fluctuates depending on the semester and can change substantially when student reporting programs open or close.
