News and Journalism

Originally written May 11th, 2017

Lane Williams came to talk to us about the News and Journalism emphasis, but also gave us a lot of great tips to make it in the industry. He mentioned that our careers started when we began school, they do not start when we graduate. This really hit home to start looking for opportunities to grow and expand in my career now instead of later.

I also learned a few things about this industry that relates to my video production emphasis. Because everyone has access to deliver and receive news, journalism is transforming. We are all journalist in a way when we comment on something happening in real time. He also made a point to have us think critically about the news and not fight change, but embrace it when it comes to media.
