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.”
