As part of an internship assignment for the “Writing for the Media” class that is a required element of the course, Mesa Journal Managing Editor Ana Ruth Lugo Mejia (and fellow UTPB student Cristina Caldera) had the opportunity to “shadow” radio personality Patsy Casas.  Casas is a bilingual radio reporter for Radio 104.7, and she also appears on Telemundo. “Throughout the day she was kind enough to show us what she does on a daily basis. She even interviewed us on the radio and asked about our class and what we looked forward to doing in our lives,” Mejia said. “It was a very exciting learning experience. It is amazing the effort, passion, and dedication that goes behind a radio and TV personality.” The “Writing for the Media” course, a communication course with internships, will be offered again in Fall 2017 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m.-9:15 a.m.  For more information, contact Dr. Myra Salcedo at [email protected]
