What is Wink News?
The Fort Myers television station, WINK, is known for hiring college students right out of school to cover the news. Some of the more recent on-air journalists came from the University of Florida, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Virginia Tech, and the University of Miami. Today, the station has expanded its on-air product to include other local stations, but the first step is to get to know the students. During their time at FGCU, the reporter will work in the production department for WINK.
