Have you participated in any internships or overseas study programs?
I am currently the Productions Intern at WRVO, the National Public Radio station that is housed on the SUNY Oswego campus.
How has your internship or study abroad experience enhanced your education?
I've seen how a professional radio station runs on an everyday basis. I also have used industry standard software to enhance my experience.
What activities are you involved with at Oswego?
I host Talkin' Sports, the 2013 Ozzie Award winner for "Best Sports Talk Show" in the Communication Studies department on campus. I have also held the positions at WNYO, the student-run campus radio station, and WTOP, the student-run campus television station. These include WNYO Public Relations Director, WNYO Sports Original Productions Director, WTOP Sports Anchor, and WTOP Assistant Sports Original Productions Director.
Why did you choose Oswego?
I chose Oswego because it had everything I was looking for. The mixture of the opportunities, proactive alumni, a television and radio station right on campus for students to use, and of course the beautiful scenery are only a few reasons why I decided to attend Oswego.
What is the best thing about your major?
The industry standard technology and the expertise of experienced professors are only a few great things about the Communications department.
Generally speaking, what impact has the Oswego faculty had on you?
They've provided me with great advice in the academic world as well as given me knowledge about the industry I will enter when I graduate. The faculty also has great connections with other prestigious Oswego alumni.
Who's your favorite professor and why?
My favorite professor on campus is Michael Riecke. Professor Riecke was a news anchor in Binghamton after he graduated, so I was actually watched him for a few years. I had 2 classes and he taught me a lot about the news industry. I was able to take this knowledge and use it in our own newsroom on campus.
Describe your department's atmosphere and how it has enhanced your ability to learn.
All of the people in the department are very approachable and concerned about the students' success. Each professor and faculty member provides their own knowledge from different parts of communications related industries.
What's the best thing about SUNY Oswego?
It's difficult to pinpoint the best thing because there are so many great things. I would say my favorite part of campus would have to be the media organizations. I have worked with television and radio and they have given me experience and opportunities to be on-air.
Comment on how your Oswego experience has helped prepare you for a career.
Oswego has given me the opportunity to be on-air for both radio and television. In the broadcasting industry, experience is crucial to improve your craft. I have also had the opportunity to meet alumni from Discovery Channel, WFAN, ABC among others at the Career Connectors networking event at FIT in New York.
What opportunities has Oswego given you that you never had before?
In just 4 semesters upon my transfer, I've worked as an intern at WRVO, hosted my own sports talk television and radio show, and have been a sports anchor for news. The opportunities I've had here at Oswego have given me an all-around understanding of broadcasting, including behind the scenes production classes, on-air experience, and hands on resources to prepare ourselves for work after school.
