Carolina Week Title: Reporter
Carolina Week Testimonial: Carolina Week provided me with a unique experience that better prepared me for my first reporting job. Functioning like an actual newsroom, Carolina Week allowed me to work with deadlines, better my communication skills, and improve my shooting, writing, and editing. It was definitely an asset when it came to finding a job, as many stations recognize not only how helpful a student-run newscast is in the learning process, but also recognize the strength of UNC’s Journalism program. I’d strongly suggest that anyone interested in working in a newsroom get involved in CW, it’s a great experience!
