I’m Louie Dane, and I’m a multimedia journalist earning a degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Maryland.
In my last semester of school I became a part of a progressive capstone experience within the Philip Merrill College of Journalism: Advanced Video Storytelling. This small group of eight talented broadcast students, with the guidance of former CNN Photojournalist Bethany Swain, collaborated to produce original news specials of our own natural sound packages, reporter packages, anchor intros and voice-over footage.
I’m currently a multimedia intern with University of Maryland Communications, where I produce web videos and contribute multimedia to press releases.
I’ve also interned with the NBC News affiliate service in Washington, D.C. During my time there I produced, wrote and edited my own packages with the help of the talented veterans at the Capitol Hill bureau.
Born and raised in New York City, I was exposed to the diversity and culture that’s unmatched anywhere else in the world. My interest in current events, politics and sports, combined with my audio/video storytelling skills compelled me to pursue a career in journalism.
