February 11, 2009

As a graduating undergraduate receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism at the Texas Christian University Schieffer School of Journalism, I have structured my coursework, employment, and internships in order to obtain a full-time position in the radio, television, or film industry.
My involvement both in and out of the classroom in the field has prepared me to be a multimedia journalist ready and able to write, edit, shoot, produce and download assignments in professional quality. As both an intern and reporter for TCU News Now I learned how to use the equipment used in the field and in the studio. During my time as an intern for News Now I was responsible for shooting stories and working in the studio during daily newscasts. In my most recent role with News Now I was a field reporter I gave weekly story ideas, completed a package once a week, and anchored or produced daily newscasts. My time with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram also gave me real work experience. I was assigned as a staff contributor to the Star-Telegram’s high school football sports section. While at the Star I contributed to the sports team’s Friday night live ticker on their website. At the conclusion of a game, score summaries and dictated game stories were given to the sports editor.
During my academic career at Texas Christian University, my coursework has provided me with insight into the world of Broadcasting and Journalism, as well as Film and Radio. In addition to this, my interest and enjoyment of Pop Culture and Sports has continued to intrigue me and I have read several articles concerning both on the Internet and in the paper on a daily basis. In addition, my love of writing continues to grow as I gain more experience in the field. As a result of my familiarity with the organization and my dream of being involved in the world of journalism, I know that if given the opportunity for employment, I would take full advantage of the opportunities that would be given to me. Through my respect for the company, my ambition, and my educational background, I believe that I would truly create a dynamic and rewarding experience for all parties.
I would love a career in the media industry that involves duties and projects that would not be work, but rather assignments that I have been waiting patiently to be able to experience for most of my life. I look forward to speaking with you and thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to contact me on my mobile phone at 678-524-8100, or via email at j.w.boller@tcu.edu.
Sincerely,
John Boller
