Swimming with sharks
Amanda Conway, a Westminster College broadcast communications major, will give her capstone presentation "Swimming with Sharks" Thursday, Nov. 13, at 6 p.m. in Old Main room 211. The event is free and open to the public.
Conway, a news reporter on Westminster Cable Network's The County Line, said, "People count on news reporters to keep them informed. Earning that viewer trust is a top priority to any reporter, especially one who is just starting out. In my presentation, I'll share the best ways-what to do and what not to do-to help a new reporter stand out from the crowd."
Following the presentation, the audience is invited to the WCN studio for the live broadcast of The County Line, the weekly news magazine that features stories from Mercer and Lawrence counties.
Conway served an internship with WSEE, the CBS-TV affiliate in Erie.
