Hey everyone, my name is Michelle and I’m a recent college grad from Longwood University. I majored in Communication Studies with a concentration in Mass Media. I’ve been working on a newspaper staff for as long as I can remember. Newspapers are my passion, I love the fast-paced environment, the thrill of the deadline and turning out a quality product. I was the Layout Editor of The Rotunda, Longwood University’s student newspaper. Design has always been my favorite part of newspaper, or media in general. I was the layout of my college newspaper and loved nothing more.
Aside from print I enjoy broadcasting as well. I have taken several broadcasting courses while in school. One of the most unforgettable experiences of my life was interning at WJLA-ABC 7. There I got to be apart of every aspect of the news station. I shadowed reporters, chased down stories, interview important people, assisted cameramen. I was also able to work alongside the producers and write anchor scripts for the 5:00 newscast. I even was lucky enough to experience the entertainment world, helping out on the Arch Campbell Show, meeting celebrities and making a cameo appearance on the show.
