About anthonyrimel

I graduated from OSU in 2008 with a degree in International Business and I am currently working on a second bachelors degree, this time in Journalism. In the time since I graduated I worked a variety of temporary positions in the corporate world. After a long and windy path I settled into an IT position at SUPERVALU where I worked on a variety of communications projects. I quickly began to realize that I was a lot more interested in the communications side of my job than I was about business or IT. Photography and writing have always been passions of mine so I decided that going back to school wouldn’t be such a bad idea. I’ve had a few people ask me why I want to get into Journalism in times where the industry is struggling as much as it is. Newspapers are dying out, TV viewership and book sales are down and the industry is shedding jobs like mad. While this is certainly true and it does seem like a difficult time to be entering the industry I also see a lot of opportunity out there. This generation of students is the one that gets to go out into the world and be pioneers that will shape the future landscape of media. The old industries are dying out or drastically changing but people are consuming more media than ever. While it is certainly a difficult environment it is also a time of tremendous opportunity. Students today are the ones that are going to be inventing new ways to bring the world it’s news and being involved in that is tremendously exciting to me! I’m here to write about Journalism, talk about my current experiences as a student traveler and observer of the world.
