Studio Day at Neumann University is an opportunity for high school students who are interested in broadcasting and communications to use the state-of-the-art professional technology in the Mullen Communication Center on campus.
This year’s Studio Day is set for Saturday, Feb. 26, from 10 a.m. to noon. The event is designed to maximize hands-on experience in the university’s multimillion-dollar television and radio studios. Students can use a teleprompter to report from the news desk, forecast weather in front of a green screen, or manage a broadcast from the control room.
Students will also meet three experienced media professionals, who will discuss both on-air and behind-the-scenes careers in broadcasting and journalism:
Marisa Magnatta, producer and digital content director of The Preston & Steve Show on 93.3 WMMR
Casey Boy, executive producer of The Preston & Steve Show on WMMR
Leigh Pullekines, EMMY Award-winning director for NBC10 and part-time Neumann faculty member
Neumann professors will explain the three tracks of the university’s Communication and Digital Media (CDM) major and discuss the many internship opportunities with media giants in the Philadelphia market.
“One of the features of this major that students love is that they can start using all this technology from their first day on campus,” says Sean McDonald, director of Neumann Media, which includes 98.5 WNUW, NeuPress, Neumann Sports Network, and NeuTube.
Neumann’s Communication majors have won Student EMMY Awards, and they produce the video for Preston and Steve’s Camp Out for Hunger every year
