Stephanie Wittenbach

About the Intern:

Fall 2018

My name is Stephanie Wittenbach, I'm from Los Angeles, California and I am a senior journalism major at Emerson College. I love to write, produce, and broadcast newscasts. On the side, I am a morning anchor for George Knight & Company at 88.9 FM WERS and apart of Emerson's RTDNA chapter and WEBN-TV. As I approach graduation spring 2019, I've finally started to realize that I enjoy investigative journalism. I'm excited to work with ACMi, with whom have an excellent rep in local news. James Milan and Sara Alfaro-Franco are into reporting public affairs issues which I'm excited to do some more in-depth reporting on. Jared is my go-to guy for learning more about Adobe Creative software to enhance my editing skills. Emerson Alum and assistant News Director Brenda Mahoney has been teaching me the ropes of reporting here at ACMi and has allowed me to just jump right in. Jeff Barnd is the new News Director at ACMi and he's been nothing but welcoming–I can't wait to learn all of his storytelling and reporting skills during my time here.
