JDM Grads on the move

Sometimes in the day-to-day workings of operating a very good academic and professionally-oriented Journalism and Digital Media department we might lose sight of the ever-changing growth of our graduates. Recently, four JDM grads moved to new positions within the media industry. Kate Siefert is now a multimedia journalist with WSYX Channel 6 in Columbus, Ohio. Rachel Ramsey has moved to be a news producer with WCMH Channel 4 in Columbus, Ohio. Ryan Sampson is in his native New York City as a digital producer for The New York Post. May 2022 graduate Mackenzie Cook is the new 11 pm producer for WRGT 24/7 Now News in Dayton, Ohio. Congratulations to all of these hard-working and talented professionals.
