Year of Graduation:
Current Job Title:
Sports anchor and reporter
Place of Employment:
WCNC-TV (NBC), Time Warner Cable, Connecticut School of Broadcasting
Why did you chose Walsh?
I chose Walsh to play baseball at a highly regarded academic institution. It was also within solid driving distance of my hometown of Johnstown, PA, and the North Canton area was growing.
Describe briefly what you do in your current job:
2010 marks my seventh year as a sports anchor and reporter. I have recently been doing on air work with WCNC-TV, the NBC affiliate here in Charlotte. In addition, I was the play-by-play tv voice for Time Warner Cable's presentation of the High School Lacrosse state championships and color commentator for high school football this past season. Voiceover work on commercials, special projects, and stories for both Time Warner Cable and a couple of other production companies has been added to the mix.
How did Walsh prepare you for your current job?
Walsh has helped me in so many ways. Its small class size made professors accessible and allowed more time for one-on-one and productive class discussion. It provided me the tools to maximize my growth as a student and as a person. I credit Walsh with giving me the confidence to succeed and in helping me develop into the communicator that I am today. In addition, Walsh helped me to maintain and expand my faith and spirituality.
What advice would you give to someone who is considering attending Walsh University?
It's a first-class institution where people care. Walsh University is a place where success is expected and where the higher standard prepares you for your field and for life. You'll be part of a special family.
