Purchase Journalism Alum Visits Campus To Give Talks

Kyle Kalotschke shown here with his idol: Bob Costas

Purchase journalism program alum, Kyle Kalotschke (class of ’10), returned to campus last week to share his experiences as Web Editor at Regional News Network (RNN-TV) – a postition he landed after applying to a job listing on LinkedIn. As is often the case for reporters in their early days, he’s working when the rest of us are sleeping. “It’s a brutal schedule, but you get used to it after a while,” he said. He’s in charge of social media and getting news video off the TV and onto the web. Kyle had some great war stories to tell the two journalism classes he talked to. Among them: a formative encounter he had with his hero, sportscaster Bob Costas, and how he once had to dress up as the Easter Bunny for live television when he was interning at The Early Show on CBS.
