Time on News Team: 1st SemesterMajor: Electronic Media and Broadcasting and Computer Science is my minor.I wanted to be a part of the news team because working at the station is fun and it’s good experience for the future.My favorite news person is Ben Shapiro.If I could report on any news event it would be to help Edward R. Murrow report the London Bombings during WW2, from the rooftops of London. I don’t think there will ever be another experience quite like that one.Earliest News memory: My earliest news related memory is probably watching the news with my father.Future career aspirations: to work in radio as production director or in television live broadcasting events.
