Anchor, Producer, Reporter

Oregon News

Oregon News is a thirty-minute live newscast that airs on Comcast channel 23 every Friday at noon.

It also streams live on the internet. Viewers can access the newscasts on the Oregon News website as well.

I anchored the Friday newscasts as well as the five-minute online newscasts. I also produced the show and coordinated stories with reporters. When I was not producing, I created two-minute packages each week about campus and community issues. Some of my stories include the Willamette Confluence Project, students' response to the string of suicides among gay teens in the nation, and the university's efforts to increase diversity.
