HTV 22 News takes first place in iNRB competition

Huntington, Ind.—Huntington University’s HTV 22 News took first place in the 2007 Intercollegiate National Religious Broadcasters TV studio contest.

Under the direction of Dr. Lance Clark, associate professor of communication, HTV 22 News is the student-produced weekly news magazine covering local news, sports and weather. The award-winning broadcast may be found online at

Todd Stapleton, a senior broadcasting major from Tipp City, Ohio, is the show’s producer, and Josh Fortney, a junior broadcasting major from Huntington, Ind., directs the show each week. This is the second consecutive year that HTV 22 News has won the award in this category under Stapleton’s leadership.

“I am so proud of these students because they are doing what it takes to write, produce, edit and direct a first class news program,” Clark said. “The competition is steep, and to take first place on the national level says a great deal about the character and determination of our broadcasting students at Huntington University.”
