Monday, January 20, 2020
Jim Vaughn from WFMZ news was our speaker this week.  Jim shared with us about how the newscast comes together and also about how he got into the business (surprisingly, not at his father’s insistence). Jim’s first love is sports and he attended college for communications, thinking he would cover sports. He shared that he thought the news was unexciting until he was asked to fill in.  He discovered how much went into the production of the news and also the thrill of covering stories such as a hurricane where reporters are giving updates around the clock. He was hooked. He eventually got asked to cover more segments until he and Melanie Falcon were given their own show.  Jim’s explanation of how the news comes together gave us all a better understanding and appreciation for the hard work done at a local news station.  Reporters write their own stories and producers are responsible for setting everything up, including graphics and piecing it all together.  Our members also enjoyed chatting about sports with Jim.

On Wednesday of this week, our own Bryon Grigsby, President of Moravian College, will enlighten us about the economic impact of small colleges.
See you all Wednesday!
Yours in Rotary service,
President Thea Lind
