Michael Harthorne and Kera Wanielista, two alumni from the Journalism Department, were recently hired by KOMO News in Seattle to write “hyperlocal" articles for KOMO's news websites. Travis Mayfield, the Executive Producer at Fisher Interactive Network, says, “You've given me two of my BEST reporters! Michael and Kera are rockstars in my book (and honestly in ALL the news manager's books)…. In fact when I'm hiring it has gotten to the point where if the candidate is a WWU journalism grad...I'll always look closer at their resume, their writing samples and likely give them an interview.” Take a look at their 30 second spots here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5pX-lgUZX8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10FSh0B6hz8 Congratulations to Michael and Kera!
