News Gathering

During my semester working for UM News, I was tasked with putting together video packages for our weekly newscast on Montana PBS. This job required me to research, write, produce, and edit pieces together, which in turn helped me become a better MMJ journalist.

The first story I produced for UM News was in September 2021, which was about a University study that looks to test how far will adolescents perceive robots as humans. One of the hardest parts about producing this story was the need to explain the study in terms that aren’t exclusive to psychologists.

The next story I put together was a profile for an artist’s gallery. I felt that it was important to share the art in an engaging fashion in order to close the separation between the art and the viewer.
