my news piece

For our news piece, Scott and I were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to interview Danny Glover and Felix Justice, who performed at TCNJ in "An Evening With Martin and Langston", a tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. and Langston Hughes. Our piece incorporated pieces of the interview and footage of their performances, and we went on to discuss TCNJ's efforts to honor black history month. In general, we didn't have too many difficulties throughout the filming and editing process, with the exception of thinking that our tape was messed up when in fact it was the player on which we were attempting to view the footage. At any rate, that is what our news piece consists of, and I hope everyone enjoys it because we definitely had a good time creating it.

Just a quick note to let everyone know that my blog is up and running.

To share a bit about myself, my name is Adam Mamawala, and I'm a junior communications major at The College of New Jersey. I'm an avid sports fan, and I am currently interning with the Trenton Thunder, the minor league affiliate of the Yankees. I hope to someday work for the public relations department of a professional sports team, ideally the Chicago Cubs. I also perform stand-up comedy, and just today I noticed that someone has created a Wikipedia page about me, which is somewhat creepy but also highly flattering. =)

At any rate, I'm very much looking forward to contributing to this blog, and hopefully everything turns out well as we near the end of the semester.
