The best presentation that I went to was given by junior Gerard Brown, a men’s lacrosse player at Ursinus. He gave his presentation on his winter externship with the Beasley Broadcast Group station in Philadelphia.
Brown, a Media and Communications major, said that he learned a lot about the business side of media during his externship. “It was really cool to see the advertising and business side of things, not just what you see on the screen” said Brown. He also mentioned the support he received from the 3 Ursinus College alums that currently work for Beasley.
Brown also described the experience as very beneficial even if he didn’t learn anything about the business. “Seeing how hard the people at Beasley work really showed me a new way of working hard” said Brown. He also mentioned that he has really been motivated to work harder in the spring semester after seeing the tireless effort the people at Beasley put in.
