TheBuzz.ie – the brainchild of Meadhbh Crowley and Glenn Dunlea, was launched last night at the UCC Journalism Society’s annual media night.
The site will operate on a daily basis and give students up-to-date news from campus life, as well as a college angle on wider issues.
The web-publication will also focus on mental health, current affairs and satire, which could provide a challenge to university newspaper, the UCC Express.
“The world of journalism is changing rapidly,” Ms Crowley said.
“We never see anyone pick up a newspaper or magazine anymore as it’s all available on our phones and computers.
“We won’t be limited by space or time like traditional print media and we have the scope to reach a much wider audience than just those who attend UCC,” she added.
