We want to offer congratulations to Westminster College alumnus Dom Ciraula as he moves to WPXI-TV in PIttsburgh. Dom is the newest production assistant at the NBC affiliate and joins a number of other Westminster grads working at the Cox Enterprises operations in the Steel City.
It was only a few short months ago when Dom and his fellow WCN staffers traveled to WPXI for a day long adventure in the newsroom. He clearly made connections and worked hard to make the jump to Channel 11.
Dom served as a leader at WCN where he headed up operations in our live sports broadcasts. He worked so many remotes from the Lawrence County Band Festival to our special live broadcasts of Titan swim meets and so many basketball and football games. Dom is an ace at troubleshooting problems from video feeds to audio and camera setup. In addition to directing live telecasts and leading the crew at Westminster Cable, he won the hearts of his fellow students who respected and rallied around him.
We’re very proud of Dom. He’s an outstanding member of the Class of 2015. We wish him all the best as he transitions to the next chapter of his life. It will be very strange without him in the WCN live truck this fall.
