Our historic L.A. home is a global hub for media innovation.

Cronkite’s new home at the ASU California Center

At ASU’s flagship Los Angeles campus, students can access internships and learning opportunities only available in a global city, and world-class faculty and innovative media projects only available at the Cronkite School. The California Center is host to the Cronkite News L.A. Bureau, where digital and broadcast students create award-winning news and sports content. The building will also host Cronkite’s MS in Digital Strategy degree program—a graduate degree that nurtures leaders in digital marketing—and a forthcoming graduate degree in Emerging Media and Narrative Storytelling.

Our historic building

The heart of ASU’s California Center campus is the flagship Herald Examiner Building, located at 11th Street and Broadway. Commissioned by William Randolph Hearst and designed by architect Julia Morgan, the building has stood in downtown L.A. since 1914. For decades, the building housed the Hearst Corporation’s Herald Examiner newspaper; now, it’s home to Cronkite News’ L.A. Bureau, as well as video/audio editing bays, a broadcast studio, a 3D studio, classrooms, a two-story event space and more.
