International student graduates and lands in Bismarck
Congrats to Anthony Humes (Class of 2014) working hard in his first TV news gig as a reporter/photographer at KFYR-TV (NBC) in Bismarck, ND.
This young man comes from Darlington-Durham in the North East part of England (that’s 3,500 miles from Westminster College). He traveled to study and play basketball at Westminster for a semester abroad opportunity. However, that turn into a full-time college situation as Anthony sought his degree in Broadcast Communications.
He made the big jump into the broadcast news business after graduation and a nearly 1300 miles drive to North Dakota’s state capitol.
Anthony’s active background with Titan Radio News, WCN, WCN 24/7 and internship at WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh served him well.
We offer a big shout out to Anthony and a hearty congratulations for carving out his place in TV news in America’s Northern Plains.
If the call letters KFYR seem familiar, the station made international headlines in 2014 because of a viral video of newbie anchor A.J. Clemente dropping the F-bomb during his debut broadcast. The incident ended his career at the station on the same day he started.
Anthony’s survived his first day at KFYR. He’s moving up the ladder making a positive impact on the viewers and his peers in Bismarck.
