Kendra Caudill, broadcast sequence (2014), is the new weekend assignment editor for ABC affiliate WTVG-TV, 13abc, Toledo, Ohio.
BGSU prepared her for a career in journalism, she said. BGSU professors cared about student success, and she had plenty of hands-on journalism experience.
Her required internships at 13abc gave her real world experience. She worked with the producers and sat in the booth during live newscasts.
It was exciting being in the newsroom during breaking news, she said.
She advises current students to take their internships seriously and soak in all that they can.
Caudill came to BGSU after graduating from Owens Community College in 2011. She graduated from Eastwood High School in 2004.
In between, she had two children and decided to return to school to complete her education and pursue a journalism career.
When she finished her final package for Kathy Bradshaw’s Advanced Broadcast News class, she knew she belonged in the industry.
