Union Broadcast Center

A Media Student's Dream Come True

Liberal Arts student Baylee Martin, describes her experience working in the Union Broadcast Center as nothing short of a dream come true. "My dream career has been to work in broadcast journalism for as long as I can remember," she shares, "and the broadcast centers at Duquesne have allowed me to make my visions for myself and my career aspirations come to life."

As assistant manager of Duquesne Student Television, Baylee produces high-quality content both in front of and behind the camera, alongside students who share her passion. "Getting together with a group of people with similar goals is a recipe for success—especially with the amazing tools at our fingertips in the Center for Emerging & Innovative Media."

Through an internship, Baylee works with local TV news anchor Mike Clark from WTAE's Pittsburgh Action News 4 as part of the video component of Praxis Magazine, a celebration of students, faculty, staff and alumni's accomplishments and good work. Baylee is also the lead news anchor for the first weekly newscast in the new broadcast center. 

"I get to take my skills in writing, interviewing, editing and research to a new level by creating real projects that I feel confident about and extremely proud of," Baylee shares, "My work has a professional edge that I never thought I would get to experience at the collegiate level."

The professionalism and opportunities I've experienced here make me feel prepared, qualified and ready to be hired at a news station.

I feel confident that news directors will be excited by the skills and experience I bring to the table.
