On-Air For STAR 102.5

Today I went in for training to be on-air talent for STAR 102.5.  I’m excited to work for another amazing station with the Des Moines Radio Group, in addition to continuing my work with LAZER 103.3.  You can catch my first shift on STAR on Sunday from 6 to 8 pm.  Click here to listen online.



3rd District Congressional Debate

The 3rd District Congressional debate went well! I operated the teleprompter for the KCCI and the Des Moines Register hour and a half live debate today.  Democratic candidates Mike Sherzan, Desmund Adams, and Jim Mowrer were in studio.

You can catch the full debate here!


Summer Break So Far

I’ve only been out of school for 2 weeks and this summer break has already been amazing.  I got to travel to two cities, Minneapolis and Chicago, and see two concerts,  Paul Simon and Beyonce.  Additionally, I got to hike out all my residual finals’ stress in Eastern Iowa at Maquoketa Caves State Park.  Even with all the fun I’m having, I’m already prepared for my two summer classes and have a head start on my applications for grad school and the Fulbright-National Geographic Storytelling Fellowship.  I’m really excited to see what this summer has in store. Check out some photos from my adventures so far!

Congressional Debate Rehearsal

Today was KCCI and The Des Moines Register’s rehearsal for the big debate amongst the Democratic candidates for 3rd District Iowa for the House of Representatives.  Tomorrow candidates Mike Sherzan, Desmund Adams, and Jim Mowrer are going to be in studio answering questions on key issues and from our viewers.  I’m so excited to be part of this production.  It’s all part of KCCI’s Commitment 2016 which is covering all the elections coming up this November.
