At Winona State University, I produced five shows a week on local arts, history and culture along with video content for our website. Part of my job included training and mentoring two production assistants. The shows we produced have garnered the station thirteen Eric Sevareid Awards issued by the Midwest Broadcast Journalists Association. The shows I produced:

 

Art Beat

Adding insight and giving you a closer look at local artists.

 

The Live Feed 

Minnesota based bands and comedians come alive on The Live Feed. A twice-weekly show featuring live, local music and more.

 

Don’t Cha Know 

The personalities, the things to do, the history, the places to go. It’s everything Winona.

 

Culture Clique 

Take a moment to walk in someone else’s shoes. Culture Clique creates awareness and understanding, while exploring the diversity of Winona.
