Since graduating from Mizzou in May of 2018, I have had the opportunity to work as a digital content producer at two different NBC stations. Though I had the same job title at each job, they were vastly different experiences.
I started after graduation at WOWT in Omaha, Nebraska. I was quickly left in charge of main dayside activity on web and social media because of great turnover. I used that experience to become a better writer, own my knowledge and push new ideas into the newsroom.
Just one year after arriving in Omaha, I was greeted with an opportunity to work at KSHB, the station I grew up watching in Kansas City. There was no way I could turn it down.
I joined a team of talented digital journalists who helped take my skills to the next level. I was given the opportunity to have a big role in daily operations, as well as time to focus on passion projects.
I’ve experienced a lot of historic events in just the few years since I’ve graduated – Nebraska floods, global pandemic, protest, etc. – and I am grateful to have a hand in documenting history and sharing important stories.
