Broadcast Journalism Feb 2017 Highlights

More than a billion people celebrated the Lunar New Year last week. And New York Film Academy Broadcast Journalism alumna Grace Shao brought that story to millions of viewers around the world on the China Global Television Network. (The network was formerly CCTV News, and was re-branded for the new year… solar new year, that is.)

Back here in the United States, Starla Sampaco has started working at TVW – Washington Public Affairs Network. (That is Washington State, not Washington, DC.) Her first story was about proposed legislation that will greatly increase penalties for distracted driving.

And while NYFA Broadcast Journalism alumnus Bryanna Reynolds is based in Melbourne, the Seven Network sports production assistant is going to be spending some time in New York. She just covered the Australian Open, and next up will be the Australian Football League season. Bryanna was kind enough to write: “It’s all thanks to what I learned at the Academy. I cannot thank you enough.”

Last week saw the start of the Spring Semester. Which meant the first camera instruction session for our incoming class of one-year students. This group (starting on the left) came to NYFA from Turkey, New Jersey, Nigeria, Spain, Croatia and Delaware. They are working with a Canon C300, the primary camera we use in the Broadcast Journalism program.
