For WATD Radio, Some Memories of Primary

For the week of the New Hampshire primaries, three Newhouse broadcast journalism students — Matt Porter, Amanda Watkins, and Jared Kraham — covered the election for WATD Radio in Marshfield, Mass. This is their final report — a sample of the voices of the primary.

It comes with special thanks to Ed Perry, owner of WATD. This is the third primary season for which Mr. Perry has welcomed Newhouse student-journalists in reporting for his award-winning station’s news. He is an extraordinarily generous broadcaster and an honorary Orangeman for all his help to Newhouse students. Thanks, Ed and everyone at WATD!
