Louisville's Journalism and Media cohort spent the day in Santa Monica at KCRW, where alumna Caleigh Wells '13 is a News Producer. Caleigh hosted our students and provided opportunity to learn about the radio business from Jill SmayoChief Operating Officer, Chery GlaserMorning Anchor, Darrell SatzmanNews Producer and Steve Chiotakishost of Greater LA. KCRW is located in a brand-new facility with live-broadcast and recording studios, a green room, large vinyl and CD music library, and a sound stage for live music performances. The highlight of the day was watching Caleigh's team record a live interview for airing later in the day. She adds, "I’ve benefited so much from having people in the industry to ask just about every kind of question you could think of so I’d love to pay it forward however I can!" Thank you Caleigh for providing such a broad experience for our Focus Program! Click to read more about KCRW...
