WFMJ-TV’s Chief Videographer John Mikulas (Class of 1996) kept his cameras rolling during both the RNC in Cleveland and the DNC in Philadelphia in July. John spent days and nights at each convention working the political beat for the NBC affiliate in Youngstown.
Rival Youngstown station WKBN/WYTV (CBS/ABC) also deployed TJ Renninger (Class of 2008) to Cleveland where he worked the RNC floor inside Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena.
Ryan Hitchcock (Class of 2010) hit the streets outside the RNC with his news camera covering the security forces and political protests for Columbus station WBNS (CBS).
These three video journalists were among several Westminster College grads on scene at the 2016 presidential conventions. We want to give them a shout-out for the great work they do and for serving as Titans witnessing history in American politics.
