Portage Pulse is a weekly public affairs program I co-created, anchored, and produced for TV2 at Kent State University. Each week, I interviewed state and local lawmakers and other civic leaders on the issues of the day and moderated a panel of student political analysts who broke down key state, national, and global issues.
I co-produced this edition of TV2 KSU newsmagazine Kent Connects. We featured stories from Kent State's international storytelling class, which had recently returned home from a two-week reporting trip to Curitiba, Brazil.
I also served as a reporter for TV2. My assigned beats included the President of the University, the Board of Trustees, and politics. I filed stories from Kent State and as far away as Columbus and Washington, D.C.
I served as a weather anchor at TV2 KSU from August 2011 to May 2013. I placed third in the Broadcast Education Association's 2012 Best Weathercaster competition and was recognized as TV2's best weather anchor three times.
