Junior Carolina Beatriz Vásquez Chinchilla is a 2021 RJI Student Innovation Fellow. She is an exchange student from the University of Navarra in Spain, will be working with TEGNA and WHAS-TV in Louisville, Kentucky, on digital centered journalism, contributing to and implementing a digital plan to support the morning show in preparation for Back to School, which will include direct text interaction with the station’s audience, push alert strategy, and creating original hyper-local content across all platforms.
“I hope to learn about different ways of delivering content and approaching a diverse audience in a demanding audiovisual and online based society,” says Vasquez. “I am excited about the opportunity to get real experience in the field, learn from professionals and contribute to new ways of telling stories and news.”
She says she’s looking forward to getting to know more about how journalism can develop and evolve to fit a changing society, and to share with the other fellows the different type of work they will be working on.
