Patrick Carragher's Summary

I have had experience in many different media environments for the past five years. From my first job in the business covering sports for the Press of Atlantic City to my current role as Assignment Editor at NBC 40, I have covered much ground in the communication field.

While at the Press of Atlantic City, I recorded and produced video news packages as well as video pod-casts in addition to covering live sporting events to writing weekly stories about the high school sports scene.

At St. Augustine, I directed all of the school's external communication with nearby news outlets including local and regional newspapers and TV stations. I also designed and produced the school's in-house publications.

Now as the Assignment Editor at NBC 40 I keep a constant watch on our local news scene. It's my job to track breaking news and make sure our reporters get to the story before anyone else. I also never turn down the opportunity to grab a camera and shoot breaking news when called upon.

My goal in each of my employment experiences has always been to better myself and in turn better the institution i was working in. While with the Press, I brought an element of video production that the sports department and much of the paper had never seen before. They now have regular video coverage of both sports and news as a featured part of their every day news reporting.

At St. Augustine, I helped spread all of the positive news that the school generated. I have even added still photography to my resume.

At NBC 40, I learned new skills every day whether it be in the news room, refining my writing skills, or behind the camera, learning the finer points of shooting video. In my time here, I've prided my self in being multi-talented and being able to write live news scripts, go out and film live events or run equipment in the studio and control room.
