Student Spotlight: Hannah Martin

Hannah Martin, Broadcasting and Production Technology student knows the value of good communication skills.

Through the Broadcasting and Production Technology program she is learning to communicate in a variety of ways.

“The Broadcasting program has taught me a ton of skills, including public speaking, connecting with people, video editing, and even how to produce something,” said Martin.

“I use these skills in my everyday life and in my job as a CPR/BLS instructor,” she continued. “I would recommend this program to everyone. Not only does it teach you production and a lot about technology, it also helps in your everyday life and communication skills.”

“Hannah has a lot of energy and talent as a student in our Broadcasting Program. She has excelled in the classroom as a public speaker, videographer, on-air talent for C19 Radio and made straight A’s during the spring 2021 semester,” said Tim Foster, Martin’s Broadcasting instructor.

Martin is also a talented musician and has created her own musical scores for several video class projects.

This summer, Martin put her newly acquired skills to work as an intern for C19TV, while also earning academic credit through the College’s Work-Based Learning program.

“We always look forward to working with interns from the Broadcasting curriculum at C19TV,” said Greg Tillman, Martin’s internship supervisor and director of cable programming at CCC. “Hannah is one of the most ambitious and energetic students we’ve partnered with. She’s up to learning anything, from editing a TV program to directing a live production, and anything in between.”

In the short time Martin has been an intern, she has created public service announcements for the C19TV Community Calendar, prepared sets for shoots in the studio, gone on location to shoot footage of events, and more. She also helped with the College’s first Broadcasting Summer Enrichment Program for high school students, which was held in June.
