Corrin Jones

Senior / Broadcast Journalism

I am currently a senior at The Pennsylvania State University earning a Bachelors Degree in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Communication Arts and Sciences. I am passionate about pursuing a career in broadcasting and strive to improve my skills with any chance possible.

A variety of experiences have prepared me to contribute across a number of platforms.

I am currently an Anchor/Reporter for Centre County Report. This past year, I have been working as an Anchor and Correspondent for Wellsboro Home Page. Through these experiences, I have gained a vast amount of experience on camera, writing for both broadcast and print and overall production skills necessary to put together a compelling story.

I gained valuable knowledge and experience through a number of internships and job shadowing experiences with WENY-News and FOX. These opportunities gave me hands on experience in the industry and strengthened my skills as a journalist.

I am capable on camera, behind the mic and behind-the-scenes.
