A fun morning talking about communication careers!
SAU Com alum Haley Taylor is up to come cool stuff: Haley: MY SERIES PREMIERES TOMO! The previous series I wrote, The Rough Draft Diaries was picked up by an outside distributor (which was great bc that series never made it to air). Because of that small success, WGTE wanted to reboot the Rough Draft Diaries. I agreed as long as I could change the format of the show. Which I did. The series will air in 6 min segments during Morning Edition. That's every wednesday at 7:45am. If you can't listen live you can listen online at our PRX page orrrr wgte.org. Here's the intro episode that we ran during pledge drive: http://www.prx.org/pieces/162759-rdd-an-introduction
