Hello! I'm Laurel Biddy, a person who loves spending her time immersed in the news culture. Right now, I'm a student at the University of Florida pursuing an undergraduate degree in telecommunications (Spring '19) with an outside concentration in Information Systems and Operations Management. I am primarily a news producer, but I also wear a lot of hats in the newsroom. I work as a director and technical director for news and sports broadcasts.
I thrive under the pressure of live newscasts, and I am not afraid to take on challenges. I would fit well in a newsroom that consistently pushes people to their greatest potential.
I invite you to take a look at my resume and samples of my work to see if you think I would be an asset in your newsroom.
