2013 Grad Lands Great New Producing Gig

Ryan Sedmak (class of 2013) is featured in this spring’s issue of College of Charleston Magazine. Sedmak is a trending producer for NowThis, a New York-based network created by one of the founders of Huffington Post.

Sedmak credits his professional success to the internships he pursued while he was an undergraduate: “My professors really stressed the importance of internships and hands-on experience. Early on, I knew that I wanted to intern at a network like NBC, and I worked with my adviser, communication professor Jenifer Kopfman, to do this. We came up with a strategy that allowed me to spend my last semester in New York working at The Today Show and Nightly News with Brian Williams and still graduate on time.”

Read more about Sedmak’s post-College success as well as his best advice for current students looking to pursue work in TV in the "I Want Your Job: Associate Film and TV Producer" series.
