Howard University added to "ABC News on Campus"

Howard University is the latest school to join ABC's "ABC News on Campus" program, the network announced Tuesday.

The program -- started in 2008 -- creates bureaus at universities around the country, staffed with journalism students who work with ABC News producers to report local stories, some of which are featured across ABC News platforms -- many appear on

Candace Smith, a senior broadcast journalism major, has been named Howard University's bureau chief. Smith interned this summer with ABC's "Good Morning America" in New York City; she previously interned at Fox-owned WTTG in Washington.

Four other journalism majors round out the bureau -- juniors Sandile Ashford and Seth Lemon, and seniors Lynee Coan and Kyla Grant.

Howard University is the sixth school to become part of "ABC News on Campus," joining Arizona State University, Syracuse University, University of Florida, University of Nebraska, and University of Texas.
