I got to sit in the director chair and direct the station IDs for tonight! It’s a simple start, but I’m excited to about my first step towards actually directing a newscast. I’m so thankful for the opportunity at KCCI.
Today I began shadowing the news directors at KCCI. I watched the director for the 9 pm and 10 pm news, and got to ask questions on some of the technical aspects. I’m excited to get more hands with directing at KCCI and to continue learning!
This summer I wanted to get training on directing and reporting.
I’m actually really excited to start both of my summer classes today. I am taking a classes at Drake University on the Vietnam War and on juvenile crime. I think both will be very interesting topics, and I’m excited to tackle more classes as I earn my dual degrees.
Just finished my first shift on-air for STAR 102.5, today’s best variety. I had so much fun hanging out with the listeners. I’m so excited to be on this station!
KCCI and the Des Moines Register co-hosted another debate for the four democratic candidates running to take on Senator Charles Grassley in the fall. Patty Judge, Rob Hogg, Bob Krause, and Tom Feigen were all in studio debating the issues and answering views questions. I’m so happy I was able work on another great local debate.
Check out some of the highlights of the debate here!
