Fond Memory: Sugar Bowl Coverage

By Katie Gillen
B.S. Telecommunication 2013

One of my all-time favorite memories from being in the J-School  is covering Florida Football for WUFT-TV. As a part of the coverage CJC alum Stephanie Jones, B.S. Telecommunication 2013, and I were sent to cover the 2013 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.

Despite the outcome of that game we had the most amazing experience. From meeting different members of the media, covering the game, capturing interviews and then closing the night by eating Bananas Foster with Chris Leak. We then proceeded to drive all night to the CJC to then edit our pieces. It was one of the most amazing experience and I made a friend for life in Stephanie. We went on to graduate and both took on jobs working for ESPN upon graduation.
