NYFA Broadcast Journalism grad Yasmine Muffoletto is currently working with French broadcaster M6, which is part of the pan-European RTL network. Last week she reported on the sale of phony college degrees (“faux diplomes”). It seems you no longer have to get a bogus degree from one of those “mail-order” universities. Instead, you can get a forgery of a diploma from an actual school.
Broadcast Journalism School Updates October 2
Earlier in September, the Cox Media Group TV stations across the United States ran a story by NYFA grad George Colli, about how the front lines of a future war could be fought above Earth, not on it. He looked into a bill that passed the U.S. House of Representatives creating a new military branch called the Space Corps.
As many of you know, George comes from the American state of Connecticut, and that is where he started his career. Now another NYFA grad from Connecticut is making her mark there too! Recent grad Alyssa Taglia is in the news, about starting to report the news. She is now at WTNH Channel 8 in her home state of Connecticut, where she will fill-in for traffic anchor Teresa Dufour, who is on maternity leave. She will also be working as a multimedia journalist (MMJ), just what she studied at NYFA.
That’s Alsyssa, on the right, with morning co-anchor Laura Hutchinson, and below that with the “Good Morning Connecticut” team. Congratulations, Alyssa!
Brazilian NYFA Broadcast Journalism grad Paula Varejao continues her world travels, this time stopping in Indonesia for her digital series “Coffee Time,” an exploration of world coffee culture. Where better to go for a cup of “java” (American slang for coffee) than the island from which that name derived, Java? From there, she want on to Bali. Tough job, Paula…
Staying in Brazil, I heard from Broadcast Journalism grad Livia Fernanda:
Hello Bill, I’m working at a radio broadcaster called Antena 1, based in São Paulo. I’ll produce content for their YouTube channel, website and social media. I’m filming, editing and presenting. This job reminds me so much what I learned at NYFA! My boss watched the videos I produced in New York and said “It’s a girl who does everything by herself.” I also hope to become a radio presenter soon, new challenges are coming … Thanks for all!
Finally, to all our former, current and prospective students, it’s autumn at NYFA’s New York campus, and this is the view…
