Rethinking Journalism

Posted by Nicquel Terry on September 14, 2009

Group Members: Nicquel Terry, Craig Trudell, Michelle Grossman

The MSU School of Journalism is rethinking the way journalism is done. The college hosted the summit “Rethink News” on Sept. 11, which included a panel of students, educators and professionals.

The panelists addressed a crowd of about 30 people and discussed a wide range of issues affecting the media industry including the loss of revenue within many publications and how technology is changing the way media organizations report the news.

Panelists expressed their personal views on keeping journalism alive and presented strategies that could help news organizations create a more quality, marketable product.

MSU students covered the event through shooting video, Web blogging and posting updates on social networking sites.

Introducing…. Nicquel T. Terry

Hi, my name is Nicquel Terry and I am a 21-year-old senior at Michigan State University studying journalism with a specialization in sociology. I’m originally from Saginaw,. where my mother and most of my family resides. I consider myself to be a very sweet, humble and ambitious individual.

I’ve had significant experience in the realms of both print and broadcast journalism. In 2007, I landed my first professional internship at The Saginaw News (Saginaw, Mich.) where I covered a wide range of community events and human interest stories. In my second year of college, I began writing for my student newspaper, The State News. In the following years, I went on to intern at The Columbus Dispatch (Columbus, Ohio) and WLAJ ABC 3 (Lansing, Mich.). This past summer I interned on the metro and business desks for the Detroit Free Press.

When I’m not engaged in journalism, I enjoy mentoring, watching movies, attempting to cook, shopping and spending time with close friends and family. I plan to graduate in May of 2010 and I’m eager to pursue my passion for journalism. I hope to to write for a top-market newspaper or magazine someday and produce multimedia packages for the publication’s Web site.

Here is my first shot at recording sequences in my JRN 400 class…
