Recently, students attending OSU were given the chance to become news anchors on OSU’s TV news show, Beaver News.
Beaver News staff held open-auditions to fill eight anchor positions on the program. After the auditions, Beaver News announced their newest anchors: Molly Jones, Anna Singer, Brooke Chrisler and Gabriella Morrongiello.
Jones is a senior in English with a minor in new media communications. In the past, Jones worked at The Daily Barometer and is currently the host of KBVR’s live music show, “Locals Live,” which airs Friday nights at 6 p.m. She is passionate about the student media program and is excited to be a part of the Beaver News team.
Singer joins Beaver News in her first year at OSU. She is a sophomore from Bend, Ore. and is in the digital communication arts program. Singer aspires to become an ESPN Sports Broadcaster. She has been in performing arts her entire life and hopes those skills can help her become the anchor she aims to be. This is her first term working with the Beaver News team.
Chrisler is working on her television debut with the Beaver News. Chrisler is a junior in the digital communication arts program and comes from her hometown of Eureka, Calif. During football season in 2012, she worked on the field photographing the OSU football team. This is Chrisler’s first time getting involved with KBVR as a news anchor. Chrisler’s hobbies include riding horses, singing, and snowboarding. She hopes this experience will help guild her to her future dreams of being an entertainment broadcaster.
Morrongiello is pleased to be entering into the realm of broadcast journalism with her new position as an anchor for the Beaver News. She is currently a sophomore pursuing a degree in new media communications with a minor in political science. Morrongiello aspires to someday become a political correspondent for news networks in Washington, D.C.
Growing up in Sonoma Calif., Morrongiello is a devoted San Francisco Giants fan.
After visiting universities from Seattle to Los Angeles, she fell in love with the small town of Corvallis and chose to make Oregon State University her home. While she adores working as a reporter for The Daily Barometer, she is now looking forward to developing the skills of a capable TV news anchor and being a part of the KBVR-TV staff.
These new anchors will be joining veteran anchors Cody Stover, Brittany Mangold, Emily Schucht and Allison Headley for this season of Beaver News.
The anchors will appear on KBVR-TV Channel 26 every Monday through Thursday at 7 p.m., on the online live stream at www.kbvr.com, or on the Beaver News YouTube channel. Auditions will be held again in spring term.
