Senior / Broadcast Journalism
Chris Gammon is a senior from Duryea, Pennsylvania majoring in Broadcast Journalism and minoring in Kinesiology. He is a part of ComRadio, Penn State’s student-run web-based radio station, as a play-by-play announcer and is also a part of Penn State’s Radio and Television Digital News Association (RTDNA). His ultimate goal is to be a sports analyst for ESPN Radio or to have his own radio show. If that isn’t possible, he would like to work for a radio station doing something sports related.
Senior / Journalism
I am a senior print journalism major with minors in sociology and sustainable leadership at Penn State, University Park. Journalism has been an outlet for writing about news and information pertaining to the environment and social issues. As an undergraduate student, I had the opportunity to teach two environmental science labs and study sustainable development in Costa Rica and Panama.
Outside of the classroom, I am a regular Eco-blogger for the NSCS blog talknerdy2me.org. This past summer, I was an editorial intern at The Marblehead Reporter in my hometown where I had the opportunity to practice reporting, writing and photography. During my four years at Penn State, I was also a dedicated volunteer for The Penn State Dance Marathon (THON) and served as a WALK team leader last year on my morale committee. This year, I plan to donate my hair to wigs for kids.
After graduation, I wish to obtain a challenging and rewarding position related to writing, social issues and environmental problems that will help me grow on both a personal and professional level.
