Lindsey Jones, our soon-to-be birthday girl received her present early this year!
Interning at Channel 9 Eyewitness News in Charlotte, NC - Jones is living the dream for any broadcast major.
Jones studies electronic media communications with a concentration in sports broadcasting.
“Since I was a child I have always been running around with a video camera making music videos, short films, and random little videos for friends and family. Now I am taking that childhood passion and turning into a career by pursuing broadcasting” Says Jones. Jones spent her internship building the bases around tv production. Working in the news room, she was able to practice the ins and outs of the broadcast world. “I worked alongside directors, producers, and editors to create content for the shows and assist in the live broadcast. I spent most of my summer in the control room getting to know the different equipment and programs that are essential to the industry. I also got the chance to create content, such as VO's and teases, that was aired in multiple live shows as well as wrote web articles for their website and Facebook. I was so honored and thrilled to be taking on such a large broadcast market at only 19.” Jones said.
When asked how The Brand Girls impacted this experience, Jones mentioned...
“Brand girls prepared me with the confidence to take on the professional world and make the most of every opportunity that presents itself. I also have a better understanding the importance of building relationships and creating networks with people within the industry. There is nothing I love more than the personal brand we worked to create for myself. I feel as if it really encapsulates what I am passionate about and how I am willing work to make that passion a career. Brand Girls is by far the best investment I have made for my future.”
I think it would be fair to say that we are among the next sports-news star!
