Millersville University senior Jean Casimir is in Sochi, Russia, as part of his internship with the television network NBC. Casimir is working as an NBC logger at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. His primary duties include screening videotapes and logging the videotape of events, as well as logging the event as it happens and indicating potential highlights to assist producers.
After high school, Casimir was accepted into the Emma Bowen Foundation, a program to prepare minority youth for careers in the media industry. Through the foundation, he was assigned to intern at NBC10 Philadelphia. Casimir, a broadcasting major and print media studies minor, has interned with NBC10 since June 2010.
For the past few years, a select few of Emma Bowen scholars, who are currently still in school and have worked for NBC stations, were interviewed for the Olympic Games internship. Out of the 20 students interviewed from across the U.S., Casimir was one of the seven students selected to be part of the NBC Olympics crew.
“The experiences that I have had with NBC10 Philadelphia, along with all of the things I’ve learned at Millersville University—from classes to co-producing a show and directing multi-camera productions of Marauder football games for MUTV—have helped me be able to participate in such an incredible event,” said Casimir.
