The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
Here at CNN, we're constantly impressed with the work iReporters are doing. Which is why we're so thrilled when others recognize it, too! We recently heard about two incredible accomplishments by a couple of our superstar iReporters and want to offer our congratulations.
Boston iReporter and Emerson College grad Abbey Niezgoda recently accepted a position as a reporter with ABC 6 in Providence, Rhode Island. Abbey's covered everything from Harvard's Hasty Pudding to roller derbies for CNN iReport, and we're consistently impressed with the professionalism of her work, from her on-camera presence to her editing skills. Congratulations, Abbey, and best of luck with the new gig!
iReporter (and former iReport intern!) James Brierton is a University of Georgia sophomore, weather iReporter extraordinaire, and, most recently, winner of the 2011 John Holliman Broadcast News Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a UGA journalism student who exhibits a "passion and commitment to broadcast journalism." We've seen that passion in James since he first started iReporting local news stories around his home on Long Island in 2008. He's currently interning with NBC News in New York. Well done, James! Keep making us proud.
"I owe iReport a lot for helping shape me into the journalist I am today," says Abbey. And we, in turn, owe you guys for bringing your talents to the iReport community and helping CNN cover stories across the country. We couldn't be happier for you. Congratulations!
If you, too, have achieved a goal with help from iReport, please be sure to let us know!
Congratulations! to both of them
Wonderful news! Happy to hear good news in a month that has been dominated by Casey Anthony and budget woe debates. Congratulations and good luck to both of you!
Do you mean that to be an unpaid CNN iReporter is like to be homeless?
