WKU Public Media

From January to December 2014, I was the staff multimedia producer/photojournalist for WKU Public Media (WKYU).

For WKU Public Radio, I shot and edited photos and videos which I published on the website and social media accounts. For these, I gathered the footage and audio myself, including interviews. I researched and pitched stories myself and completed assignments from reporters. I also edited reporters’ photos. I shot behind-the-scenes photos of reporters, especially during pledge drives, for the website, social media accounts, and archival purposes. I also shot promotional photos of our pledge gifts.

For WKU Public Television, I shot photos of the crew behind the scenes and notable guests who visit our studios for our social media and archival purposes. I learned how to operate the cameras, including the Canon C500, and was a videographer on multiple shoots. I was a camera and production assistant.

I created a photo gallery and wrote a corresponding article about the making of a horror film. A WKU film student wrote and directed the film titled, “The Milkman” about a milkman in the 1950s who kills his customers.
