I am incredibly honored to announce that I placed third in the William Randolph Hearst Foundation‘s Broadcast News Competition – Hard News category.

What this also means is that I get a chance to compete in a semi-final for the general TV News competition, and if I make the top five (out of ten students) I will compete in the championship final. It still feels somewhat surreal, but I’m confident that if I work hard in the next month I can produce great quality pieces and make that final. Not mention that an all-expenses-paid trip to San Francisco sounds pretty nice during this dreary end of February!
