Caroline Cameron, Broadcast – Journalism ’12


{Logo : Fanshawe College} {Music} {Images of Caroline in studio} I always loved sports from when I was a
little kid. I loved playing sports, I loved watching them and then at the
same time, I always loved the news and current events, so the two kind of went
hand-in-hand and it was early on in high school that I realized I wanted to be a
sports broadcaster, and ya the rest is history. {Music} Hey everybody welcome to Sportsnet Central, I’m Caroline Cameron… I’m working my dream job right now. It’s my job to sit and watch sports. It’s also just really fun working with
other sports fans because you get into work and you’re watching the games, you’re talking about the games, you’re debating what’s going on, so it’s kind of just
like people and their buddies at the bar or on the couch at home watching the game,
we’re doing that at work. It’s pretty cool. Well in a matter of hours Milos
Raonic will take the court against Roger Federer. A career highlight was
definitely going to Wimbledon and seeing Milos Raonic face Roger Federer, who to me is the greatest athlete ever, see them face off in the semi-finals and be there to
cover it when you know you’re covering history. And then you feel a little bit
of pressure because you want to do the story justice to share with everybody else. I loved Fanshawe. I not only got a great
education, but I made lifelong friends as well. and we all had a love for
broadcasting. {File: Fanshawe Graduation, 2012} Caroline Cameron {cheering} Fanshawe really helped me prepare for my job and
for this career because by the time I left school I already had the structure
and the skills to move forward. I had the writing skills, I had the
interviewing skills, I knew what went into a good story. I still stay in touch
with Jim Van Horne. Hey Jim. It’s really neat to share experiences with old profs
because I feel like I wouldn’t be where I am without people like Jim. I’m just happy for her, that as hard as she’s worked that the payoff was there. She busted down some doors with her work ethic and talent and commitment. Be a go-getter and don’t be afraid to network to. And from there you just kind of learn what you have to do and you hear different people’s paths and you can kind of figure out what yours should be. {Logo: Fanshawe College}
