austin360: Texas A&M journalism grad Lyle Lovett speaks out for student newspapers

As student newspapers across the country are campaigning to #SaveStudentNewsrooms from the financial pressures that are taking a toll on the rest of the industry, one of Texas A&M’s most famous journalism graduates has stepped forward to voice his support.

Lyle Lovett on Wednesday took to Twitter to argue for the value of the student newspaper experience. “In my day there, the @TheBattOnlinenewsroom gave us @tamu journalism students a sense of community. It was a place we could learn from each other—the best classroom on campus.”
