Media Hub serves as the news outlet for the Media and Journalism School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The newsroom is split into teams of students gathered from various concentrations. As the Public Relations representative, I help pitch stories to major news outlets, handle social media accounts, and manage the website, but also collaborated to produce compelling stories, videos, and investigative journalism pieces. Check out a few of my team’s stories below!
My team was sent to Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. Our mission was to find the remaining family members of a Chapel Hill resident, who was able to rescue half of his family right after the storm. After 3 days of traveling through the mountains and villages with no cell service, we found the family by word of mouth. We also reported on the abandoned pets that crowded the Humane Society and the other animal shelters that remained. Check out some photos of the trip!
