Kudos and many thanks today to Jasmine Wallace, here at NCPR this summer under internship through St. Lawrence University, for her true broadcast debut this morning during the 8 O’clock Hour.
Jasmine is a senior at SLU, and will be features editor for the school newspaper, The Hill News, this coming year. Her profile of Pat Curran and his wood pellet business in Massena was the capstone of a 3-part series this week on renewable and locally produced energy, and its place in the North Country economy.
You’ve heard Jasmine’s work before, in Heard Up North audio postcards from her favorite place: the stables where she keeps her horse, and where she rides most afternoons after she leaves the station. Find them here, and here.
She’s also an integral part of the web production team here, writing and editing text for news stories, finding photos, researching additional web content, and generally adding to the mix at ncpr.org.
Her piece on air this morning got her out on the road in St. Lawrence County for a substantive story, requiring a fuller range of the public media journalist’s skills: research, interviewing, writing, and in-studio voicing and production.
Great job, Jasmine! What’s next on the story list?
