ATHENS, OH – Weekend TODAY Coordinating Producer Katie Primm will talk about her road to New York City and how her WOUB connection helped her get there at the next WOUB Wednesday on September 29 at 7:30 p.m.

WOUB Wednesdays are a great way to provide students the opportunity to talk with industry professionals virtually,” said WOUB Director of Student Professional Development Michael Rodriguez.

Primm graduated from Ohio University in 2006. She got the Ohio University TODAY Show internship during her senior year of college, thanks in part to the experience she gained working at WOUB. After graduation, Primm started working for the NBC page program and was hired out of that program into the NBC Specials and Election Unit, where she covered breaking news and politics before making the move to Weekend TODAY. Primm recently was a part of producing NBC’s coverage of the inauguration of President Joe Biden.

“Throughout fall semester, we have several former WOUB students scheduled to talk with current students and alumni,” said WOUB Community Engagement Manager Cheri Russo. “The former students are excited to share what they have learned out in the industry with current and former WOUB students.”

Other upcoming WOUB Wednesday speakers include Esports Engine Broadcast Operations Manager Carter Rodriguez, rue21 CEO Bill Brand, Buckeye Broadband’s Buckeye Cable Sports Network (BCSN) Program Director and Anchor Justin Feldkamp and ESPN Crewing Supervisor Kim Kanner.

The virtual discussions will be held on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. throughout the semester and are open to all current and former WOUB students as well as WOUB staff. Those interested can register at  Registration is required for each session.
