Congratulations to Victoria Hosey for placing in the Top 20 in the national Hearst Journalism Awards contest in the radio news/feature category.

Victoria’s winning entry included three Rebel Radio packages. One was news coverage of the Journalism and New Media forum on Sept. 20 following Ed Meek’s Facebook post.

Two packages focused on interviews with people affected by Hurricane Michael. Victoria was one of several students on a reporting trip to Panama City after the hurricane, led by JNM faculty Ji Hoon Heo, John Baker and Mark Dolan.

Victoria was Rebel Radio’s news director fall semester and graduated in December. She will spend the next year teaching in China and taking Chinese language classes.
