Fox News Channel recently named two University of Montana broadcast journalism students the winners of the network’s College Challenge.
Alexandra Schwier of Bozeman and Kyle Schmauch of Kalispell produced a television news story on Montana's controversial wolf hunt that won the national contest.
Schwier, Schmauch and UM Professor Ray Ekness flew to New York City and appeared on FNC's morning entertainment news program "FOX and Friends" on April 27 to accept the award.
For winning the College Challenge, Schwier and Schmauch split a $10,000 award. UM’s radio-television department received a matching $10,000 gift. Following the appearance on "FOX and Friends," the students took a tour of the FNC building and studios, met with network executives and interviewed for summer internships.
