Date of graduation: May 2006
Employer: CBS Radio Charlotte
Location: Charlotte, NC
Job Title: Digital Content Coordinator
Carolina Week Title: Reporter
Carolina Week Testimonial: At first, I started to dread even taking Carolina Week because of all the stories I heard about the extremely long hours and work you have to put into the class. But after being in the first class, I was hooked and the horror stories became a thing of the past. I’ve learned not only about the technical aspects of editing and shooting for a live broadcast, but I also learned discipline in developing my stories to a specific audience. My advice to future CW’s would be to keep your mind open to new possibilities and areas every day because you never know your true passions in the industry until you try it out while in college.
I never even considered radio until after college, and it blended my love of music/entertainment/sports with that of the skills i learned in CW. Radio has now such a digital and viral presence, especially here at CBS Radio, that my projects and videos can reach thousands thanks to us being On-Air, Online, and On Demand. We are always looking for digital, social media, and graphics design interns, so e-mail me if anyone would like to apply for positions in the summertime.
