    NYFA Broadcast Journalism grad, and Cox Media Washington correspondent, George Colli covered an important story over the past weekend. He spoke with the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Tom Frieden, about the failure of the U.S. Congress to provide funding for the ongoing fight against the Zika virus. The CDC and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases have run out of money, and it could bring mosquito control efforts and vaccine research to a halt at the end of the month.

    On a far lighter note, NYFA Broadcast Journalism grad Chiara Carcano is off on a worldwide adventure. She is one of the participants in Donnaventura, a hybrid Italian travel/adventure television series. Good luck, Kiki!

    While the Rio Olympics are now a memory, we just found out that one of our grads was working at the Broadcast Center. Karina Gaudereto was one of the brave Brazilians who came to NYFA in the middle of a cold, wet, dark New York winter. Congratulations, Karina.

    Finally, Good Morning America — ABC’s morning chat show — recently introduced a new set and a new format for the last half-hour of the program. But before they could take the show to air, they had to block out all of the camera angles and locations. A group of NYFA faculty and students came by to help play the role of “audience” during the rehearsals. Editing instructor Ed Parada took some still images of the occasion. He even took one of me! Which means, for you incoming students, you now will recognize me on Registration Day.

    One of the real advantages of studying Broadcast Journalism in New York is the chance to meet, and network with, outstanding television professionals.

    Recently Aliki Shinas, a news producer for a leading network, spent the morning with NYFA Broadcast Journalism students. She described her own career path, including working as a staff news writer at WCBS-TV here in New York, and how production is organized at the top-rated network morning news program. She also shared insights into the changing nature of TV news audiences, along with the challenges of cross-platform content distribution.

    In addition, at the end of the class she spent time in one-on-one conversations with the students.

    New York City is a global media capital. That’s why the NYFA Broadcast Journalism program attracts students from throughout the United States, and around the world. Our current class includes students from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Ecuador, France, Germany, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Thailand and Turkey, as well as California, Florida, Virginia, upstate New York, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx.
