Baseball Bats and Bowling Balls

June 1, 2010

They might both start with b’s but baseball and bowling are two totally different sports. The main difference, the pace. Therefore I had to be a little more creative in shooting my bowling package than the baseball package. I feel like both of the packages’ videos turned out well. I tried to fit in as many sequences as I could. Bowling was a gold mine for sequences. Because it is a very repetitive sport, I was able to get a lot of sequences from different angles.

“Macon it happen”

May 29, 2010

Sometimes there is not a whole lot of newsiness to a topic, its just plain interesting. So when someone told me about the Macon County Historical Society’s new museum I was definitely hooked, but it wasn’t newsy. The museum itself is interesting, but the building is what captured my attention. It began as a military academy that was known as the “Westpoint of the Midwest.”

Close to the Heart

May 25, 2010

As a general assignment reporter you do a lot of stories that are interesting to you and that matter to people, some more than others. But only a handful really impact you. Some impact you through emotion, relevance, intrigue, or through the people you meet doing them. This past week I was impacted by a story I did because of its relevance to me.

The next chapter in my book begins…

May 20, 2010

So these past two weeks I have been really trying to step up my game. To really rev things up I started with my performance during my morning sports anchoring. I love sports and have a fun personality (or so I have been told) and I really want that to show when I am on air talking about fun stuff, like sports (and even as much as I can in news while still being serious.)

A Tree v. a Rodeo

May 3, 2010

Two weeks ago I got a chance to saddle-up and go to the rodeo (well I didn’t actually get on a horse and I just went to rodeo practice.) I got to do a story on the Missouri Valley College Men’s Rodeo team who is No. 1 in the nation. This was a great experience, I love learning about sports that are not in the mainstream (like basketball, baseball, football, etc.)

Cardinals Bloggers, Unite!

May 3, 2010

Courtesy of Dale Hansen, I might have found the next “fat kid in a T-shirt in his mother’s basement, eating Cheetos and writing his blogs.” Well I am not sure if that is how I would describe my next new found world of the blogosphere, but Hansen might. I ran across a 17 year old who has a really interesting blog cleverly named, Cardinals Front Office. Yes, the kid is 17 (only 4 years younger than me) and wants to someday be a GM (ambitious endeavors, but I would say if he is already putting in the effort to do…

Live and Learn

April 19, 2010

4 shifts, 3 days. It was a little rough because I also had to go to class and take a test during that time, but I learned a lot (mainly that I can actually do 4 shifts in 3 days.) The VO Patrol was interesting because I got to sit in on my first city council meeting and got some story ideas out of it. Also I was able to make it into a more interesting story than just a summary of the meeting because it was the mayor’s last city council meeting and day in office. But it kind of…

Cheetos, blogging and Jerry Jones?

April 19, 2010

This week a reporter by the name of Dale Hansen for WFAA in Dallas questioned the broadcast industry for what it is today. He said “Our business now, too many times, is a fat kid in a T-shirt in his mother’s basement, eating Cheetos and writing his blogs – and we make it news.” Well I would like to tell Mr. Dale Hansen that I am not a fat kid, I am sitting in my own apartment and I just had a nutritious meal that did not include Cheetos. I do agree with his statement to a certain point.

Sweet Surprise

April 5, 2010

One thing I have learned is that there are stories all around you. As a journalist you have to be nosey and keep your eyes opened. So when I was on my way to Cancun, Mexico, this past week casually flipping through my April issue of Vogue I wasn’t looking for story ideas or even a good article to read.

Sweet Selection Sunday

March 15, 2010

Today was the glorious day of Selection Sunday. One of my favorite times of the year. The official start, in my opinion, of March Madness amazingness. (My family and I are such dorks that I read my mom the selections as they came out to her over the phone and she relayed it to the rest of the family while they were driving somewhere.)

Getting in the SWING of things

March 15, 2010

It is now the season for college ball. Which allows me to be outside in the glorious (almost spring) weather and shoot sports. Until next week, I had never shot baseball or softball. But I got my chance to learn last week and shoot the softball home opener. All I got was a crash course at the station and a “good luck.” To tell you the truth, I am glad that’s what happened.

NBC Winter Olympics coverage a wipeout

March 1, 2010

The 2010 Winter Olympics sadly came to a close tonight. Now I won’t have snowy, wintery awesomeness to watch while I am doing nothing. But in honor of the closing ceremonies, as someone in the broadcast business, I feel the need to comment on the coverage of the Olympics.

29 point victory over Colorado, check… K-State, to-be-determined

February 27, 2010

Last week I shot my first Missouri Men’s Basketball game. This week I got another exciting chance to do it again. Knowing more what I had to do coming into it this time, I feel like I came in more prepared. I was able to do research before hand and have an idea of what I wanted my story to be about. I also was getting a chance to do a story for not only KOMU but also for KSDK in St. Louis where I interned this summer.

Kim English Schools the Horns

February 19, 2010

On Wednesday night’s game against the Longhorns, I got to shoot my first MU basketball game. What a game to pick! (I even made it in the background of a picture on ESPN.com, which is ironic because I did a package on English’s amazing game he had.) It was an amazing game to be at, let alone be right on the sidelines shooting the game and sitting in the post-game press talks.

“V” is for voluminous amount of Valentines Day stories

February 15, 2010

Today is the wonderful Hallmark holiday of Valentines Day. The semi-fake holiday that was just created from the good old spirit of consumerism. Don’t get me wrong, I like the holiday, I did a story about the holiday this week. It was one of those stories about a holiday that every other reporter is doing. So how does one go about separating themselves from the crowd? Not just a news story in your area that everyone is covering but pretty much everyone in the country and in the world.
