Graduate / Broadcast journalism

I have worked in a fast pace environment while maintaining a positive attitude. I am a team player and like to be hands on when working on a newscast. My experience at Penn State, and working in a live news broadcast control room, has given me enough knowledge to follow my dream as a TV news producer. I am ready to pursue my career in the broadcasting business. I am willing to work hard to the top and make myself well-known in the broadcasting industry. I understand that it will be a long journey but I am excited to see what the future holds.
