Why sports journalism...
It's a crisp and sunny Saturday morning, the birds are out chirping and the TV is on in my house. From a young age, my Saturday's started and ended with college football. Waking up to the voices of Kirk Herbstreit, Rece Davis, Desmond Howard and Lee Corso have been a tradition of mine since I can remember. It's the pregame adrenaline rush that gets me fired up for the upcoming Badger game. It's the excitement of which college town Gameday will arrive at and for an aspiring journalist like myself, it's an all around perfect day.
Growing up in Madison, Wisconsin has not only given me bragging rights for many years, but the opportunity to be immersed in a culture so dedicated to sports. From the Green Bay Packers and the history behind Vince Lombardi, to the Jump Around tradition shared with Badger fans each season, gives me reasons to think it can't get much better. The year 2019 has proven that it does get better as both the Milwaukee Brewers and the Milwaukee Bucks are having exceptional seasons so far. I look forward to being a part of the action of my favorite sports teams during my NBC 15 internship this summer.
