My year as a Page at NBCU
East Coast Page (22-23)
I've spent the past year cultivating my skills in news production, social media content creation and digital reporting, while simultaneously mastering a strong understanding of the media landscape at large as an East Coast Page.
My three rotations in the program were at the Today Show's social team, the CNBC Long Form Unit and on Corporate Communications Production and Digital.
In addition to my 9-5, I had the opportunity to interview stars at a Tribeca Film Festival premiere, lead a group of 10 Pages and liaise with the control room at the 2023 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, cover multiple Today Citi Concerts live and work with audiences for the live productions of Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

As a Today Digital Page, I edited 3 to 5 TikToks and Instagram Reels daily, created graphics and wrote copy for multiple Today brands (@todayshow, @hodaandjenna, @todayfood and @readwithjenna), captured content live in studio and wrote articles for today.com.
A few of my TikToks, Instagram Reels and posts:
On the CNBC Long Form team, I acted in a production assistant capacity by assisting producers on shoots, pitching new styles of storytelling for the films, fact-checking hour-long scripts and conducting research on shoot locations and historical events.
