WKBW Sports Anchor Jenna Callari Visits Medaille to Speak to Broadcasting Students
WKBW-TV Sports Anchor and Multimedia Journalist Jenna Callari visited Medaille's Buffalo campus on November 15 to speak to students in Clinical Associate Professor Lisa Marsherall’s COM 130 broadcasting class. The News 7 sports broadcaster shared her experience with students, and described how the industry has changed over the years.
Callari offered insight into future broadcasting careers to the Survey of Broadcasting: History, Programming and Operations class, describing how social media and live videos are a big part of the job now. She also emphasized the need to be versatile: “You often have to write your own scripts and edit your own videos, in addition to reporting,” she says. “Working in the broadcasting field is a huge commitment, but it can be a lot of fun.”
Department of Communication & Sport Studies Chair Lisa Marsherall makes a point of bringing professionals from the industry to campus to speak to students during classes or department luncheons. She believes that students benefit from hearing these professionals, including Medaille alumni, speak about real-world field experience and industry best practices.
