Via Cari, I’ve discovered that UVa students are putting together a regular webcast of a news show, Hoos News. I just finished watching the first (and, thus far, only) episode, and it’s thoroughly enjoyable. It’s clearly modeled on The Daily Show, from snarky anchor to over-the-top correspondents, and does a good job as an homage. Some bits are quite funny, others just come across as awkward, but the whole production is very promising. Given that it took some fifty hours to put together the episode, here’s hoping they find the time to keep putting it out.
