Another Hearst Winner

Congratulations to Elon sophomore Samantha Baranowski for finishing fifth nationally in the Hearst Journalism Awards radio news competition.

By being in the top five, Sam will be invited to submit additional entries for a second round of judging that could lead to her being invited to compete in the National Broadcast News Championships in New York City in June.

This is the competition in which Elon broadcast journalism major Randy Gyllenhaal finished #1 in the nation in television news in June 2009.

In this year’s radio news competition, a student from Syracuse finished first, Hofstra second, UNC third and Brigham Young fourth. Sam produced her winning radio pieces as projects in Rich Landesberg’s Broadcast News Writing class. She is an anchor on Elon’s student television newscast, Phoenix14News, and is working in a “60 Minutes” internship this winter term. Congratulations, Sam!
