About the Contributors
Senior / Broadcast Journalism and English
Currently, I am senior at Penn State University. I will be graduating in May 2012 with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and English.
Throughout my four years at Penn State, I have been actively involved in ComRadio.
As a freshman I joined ComRadio and have held every position in the News Department. My positions have included, reporter, producer and currently News Director. My experience with ComRadio has given me the leadership skills, knowledge and drive to be able to be a producer at a radio or television station.
I interned at WPSU, an NPR affiliate, in State College. As their only news intern, I was responsible for pitching story ideas, interviewing sources, and editing my stories. This internship gave me the ability to connect with many different people around the community and to paint a picture with my stories.
I have had a lot of experience in radio, but I am very interested in television as well. I am a reporter and anchor for Centre County Report, a weekly local television newscast produced by Penn State Journalism students. I will be traveling to Brazil in March to be an international reporter.
