Some reporter packages and donuts from my time as a reporter for CitrusTV and NCC News. I spent time as the beat reporter for Syracuse men’s soccer, men’s and women’s lacrosse and track and field while also covering basketball games my senior year. I had a lot of fun working with other reporters and banding together to travel to games from around New York, as far south as Maryland and as far west as South Bend, IN. For extra fun check out the first package I ever did (yikes), as a freshman track and field reporter for Syracuse, at the bottom of the page.
