I think I speak for all the faculty in the New York Film Academy (NYFA) Broadcast Journalism department when I say we felt a deep sense of pride when we saw the bio of Grace Shao appear on the CNBC website. A NYFA Broadcast Journalism grad, Grace worked tremendously hard to reach this point. And I have no doubt she will continue working just as hard!
We’re in the middle of summer here in New York, and the weather report seems to repeat day-after-day. It always seems to be “hazy, hot, and humid.” It is easy forget that, in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s winter! A fact that was brought home to me by a video posted by former NYFA student Livia Fernanda, who works with Somar Meteorologia in Brazil. That’s an ice crystal in the graphic behind her…
Staying in the Southern Hemisphere, our favorite red carpet reporter—NYFA grad Bryanna Reynolds—is at it again, proving you can interview Hollywood stars thousands of miles (or kilometers) away from Hollywood. Bryanna always impresses me with her ability to communicate in “emoji.”

You can find NYFA Broadcast Journalism graduates in many places. Even newspapers! Here is the latest from Lorenzo Capezzuoli Ranchi about the many, many challenges “dalla A all Z” (from A to Z) facing the Italian government.
Finally, the documentary that NYFA faculty members Evgenia Vlasova, Dee Vlachos, Lexi Phillips and I collaborated on—Shanghai 1937: Where World War II Began—is now available on Amazon Prime. So far, it has been broadcast on 180+ American Public TV stations. We’ve also seen more than 7,000 people click on the program website to watch an online preview. Many are teachers who used the free Teacher’s Notes we provided as the basis for high school and college classroom activities.
