I'm an incredibly passionate and dedicated journalist. I have always been fascinated by news and storytelling. I've been working in news since I was in high school, so I've been writing for about seven years now. I have experience with writing in both broadcast and print styles, editing videos, pitching stories, working with affiliates, and coordinating.
I've had a blog post featured on Fredricka Whitfield's CNN blog, an article with my own photographs published in The Newnan-Coweta Magazine, several articles and photos published in The Signal, Georgia State University's student newspaper and several pitched stories landed in the Top 20 Downloads at CNN Newsource.
Experienced working in a newsroom, shadowed anchors, writers, editors and producers, assisted with finding and cutting videos for air, wrote scripts, teases, and banners, learned how to use iNews, VizPilot,MediaSource and Adobe Premiere Proxy Edit, wrote and published a blog post on Fredricka Whitfield's CNN.com blog.
Learned to write broadcast scripts, pitched stories, had stories on the Top 20 Downloads multiple times, learned the basics of coordinating, completed an ongoing project to organize CNN Newsource's twitter followers.
Examined print stories and turned them into short, concise broadcast scripts, researched stories, worked with other writers and editors to create broadcast scripts for local news stations around the world, pitched story ideas and worked with my copy editor to improve my writing skills and worked in the newsroom during the presidential election.
Researched video footage at the request of over 1,000 news affiliates worldwide. Processed requests using Mira, MediaSource, iNews, and Bit Central. Edited footage using proxy edit and partial fulfillments. Searched for tapes in the CNN library. Downloaded/published Barter spots using Hula/Javelin and iNews. Transcribed packages, SOTs, looklives, and various other types of stories for Newsource assignment editors.
Conducted interviews, researched stories, took photos for many of my published articles, chosen as "mostoutstanding writer" by Entertainment/Living Editor in 2011.
