WUFT News had its first big test since the August opening of the Integrated News Facility at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications with Tuesday night’s coverage of the 2012 election and live updates throughout the evening.

More than 60 journalists from the college covered the election in the new Integrated News Facility, the WUFT studios and in the field at polling precincts. With live updates on WRUF-TV, the college’s 24-hour weather station, Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM and a special 30-minute broadcast at 10 p.m. and constant updates online, the newsroom was filled with a constant buzz of ringing phones, radio broadcasts, television updates and chatter of the most recent polling numbers.
