Campus Conversation: Anya Carney

"Carolina News is part of the journalism track and is also known as “Senior Semester.” Every journalism major looks forward to senior semester, especially because we have a full newsroom, control room and studio right in the J-school. My favorite parts of Senior Semester are getting to spend time with everyone—all day everyday—and getting to switch roles everyday. We get to trade being a reporter, producer, anchor, director, weather anchor, sports anchor every single day, as well as working in the control room or operating cameras in the studio. No two days are ever the same. Working from home means we no longer have access to any of this, however. Now we plan, tape and edit our newscasts completely remotely, but we have also never worked so much as a team since having to make these changes. We have to video call to do interviews, and when I’m on camera, I have a tripod set up in my room and use a teleprompter app to read my scripts. It’s difficult, but it’s real, and I’m so proud of what we’re able to accomplish under these unprecedented circumstances."
