Senior / Broadcast Journalism

I am currently pursuing a degree in Broadcast Journalism, with a special interest in sports. I am a hard working individual with clear goals, which are to become an executive producer for a major television network such as NBC, CBS, FOX, or ESPN. With the experience that I have gained at Penn State both in the classroom and outside of it, I can be a creative force in the production of a sports broadcast.
