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.
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!
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!
In addition to serving as a production assistant at KCCI, I will also be working as a committed editor for the newsroom. That means on Mondays and Tuesdays I will only be editing content for the newscasts. This will give me more time to work on my visual storytelling, and I’m excited to show off my editing skills!
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.
