WOUB Senior Spotlight: Chloe Gee Workman< < Back to
ATHENS, OH – Chloe Gee Workman is headed to Beaufort, South Carolina after she graduates from Ohio University this May. The Gallipolis, Ohio native has accepted a position as a production and social media specialist for Beaufort County. Gee Workman started at WOUB almost as soon as she arrived on campus.
“I started on WOUB’s Gridiron Glory (WOUB’s half-hour high school football program) my freshman year,” said Gee Workman. “I knew about Gridiron while I was in high school because the show covered my school team, and I knew that I wanted to work on the show when I came to college at Ohio University.”
Gee Workman says she has always been interested in covering sports and her experience at WOUB taught her how much work goes into producing a program.
“Coming in to WOUB I didn’t have any journalism experience other than my school paper,” said Gee Workman. “I learned almost everything at WOUB, whether it be the technical side or the on-air side. I was able to get started pretty much as soon as I stepped on campus and for that I am forever grateful. I also learned how to be a team player and how to work alongside other brilliant people with creative ideas.”
During her time at WOUB, Gee Workman has also been involved with WOUB’s Hardwood Heroes, The Bobcat Sports Showcase and NewsWatch. But she says the value of working at the station goes beyond the professional, hands-on experience you gain as a student.
“The most valuable part of WOUB is the connections it can bring you,” said Gee Workman. “So many great people have gone through this program, and just being associated with it can put you a step ahead in the journalism world.”
Gee Workman hopes to someday work in media for a professional sports team in the NFL, MLB or NHL. Her hobbies are reading, exercising, playing with her dogs and playing softball.
