Early on in my undergraduate years I was required to do hourly newscast in the Innovation News Center. I started in radio before starting to learn TV. I really enjoyed radio and continued to improve my writing skills on air.
Becoming a part of the INC and getting involved with CMIR I gained so many priceless experiences. In my Sports Media and Society Class I had the opportunity to meet amazing guests speakers that provide great insight. I even got to meet former wide receiver OchoCinco
After learning the basics in the INC I decided to start working at ESPN Gainesville. I produced hourly sports updates and web content. The content that I wrote was posted to the WRUF website. Becoming a part of the ESPN Gainesville family I got to experience different sporting events that were very exciting. I attended SEC Nation in the Fall where I ran into Tim Tebow.
Even with all of the outside work that the CMIR has provided me with I also learned a lot in the classroom. The classroom material formed a foundation for the skills I would enhance in the INC and at other on-campus sites.
I will forever be indebted to the CMIR and CJC. The University of Florida has provided me with the steps to success. I am proud to be a CJC student and as always I am proud to be a Gator!
