Teddy Tutson '07
Video Content Manager, NUVOtv, and Stand-up Comedian
In His Words
"The Media Fellows Program gave me such amazing critical thinking skills and exposed me to areas of media that I didn’t know existed."
"What appealed to me most about the Media Fellows Program was getting hands-on experience from the very beginning. I was able to get involved at the television and radio station, and gain valuable skills while also working on some great projects."
"Being a Media Fellow taught me skills that apply to one area also apply countless others. The same skills I learned producing PSAs at WGRE have been put to use creating comedy sketches."
